Was listening to Neko Case’s Middle Cyclone on my way into work this morning and felt inspired to share her delicate sketches and creative tenacity with you. Aside from her smooth vocals and deeply soulful voice, Neko draws most of her own CD covers, tour posters, t-shirts, and 99% of what’s on her website. Her art was set into moving illustrations played on a huge screen when I saw her in concert last year. “People Got A Lotta Nerve” is one of my all-time favorite Neko songs, but when I saw her performing it live with a video of her drawings coming to life behind her on stage…let’s just say it was epic. I hope you appreciate her as much as I do.

Still shot of “People Got A Lotta Nerve” video

You know they call them killer whales
But you seem surprised
When it pinned you down to the bottom of the tank
Where you can’t turn around
It took half your leg and both your lungs
And I craved I ate hearts of sharks, I know you know it

I’m a man man man man, man man man eater
But still you’re surprised prised prised when I eat ya











climb the boxcars to the engine through the smoke into the sky
your rails have always outrun mine
so I pick them up and crash them down
in a moment close to now

(“this tornado loves you”, Neko Case)
