Review // Neko Case – The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You

neko caseAnti // September 2nd

It’s an extraordinarily long title for a reasonably short album, but Case’s sixth solo album, the first since 2009’s Grammy nominated ‘Middle Cyclone’, is an Americana soaked joy. Country isn’t a genre that holds the immense following here it does in the States, often confined to the dark dusty corners of record shops, but there’s no doubt ‘The Worse Things Get..’ could help open us up to its merits. With heartbreaking lyrics and intricate guitar work at its core, it’s an album 100% in control of itself, a journey of discovery that just won’t let you go.
