Song Of The Week : Neko Case "Star Witness"

I am obsessing over Neko Case! I borrowed much of her stuff and made a little mix (playlist!) that I have been playing incessantly. People compare her to Patsy Cline and other country singers, but what I really hear are links to the late, but unforgotten Kirsty MacColl and to the very much alive Maria McKee.

I want to highlight two new songs on the web right now, both from her March 7 album Fox Cobfessor Brings The Flood. The first is the vocally acrobatic "Star Witness" available in MP3 via Black Balloon, and the other is "Hold On, Hold On" also available as an MP3 from Black Balloon.
