neko’s most precise, urgent record to date, marked by a melodic immediacy, a loving embrace of the big rock gesture & rich, associative lyrics.

the perfect culmination of neko’s trajectory so far - the pop, folk & country influences, the fluid craft of her band, & that soaring voice, blended seamlessly into the album’s lush pop textures. the record traces an emotional arc that reveals case in all her thorny contradictions, each track in the 40-minute song cycle its own short story. from the prickly power-pop aggression of ‘man’ to the dreamscape of loss ‘where did i leave that fire?’ & the hopeful uplift of the album’s closing track, ‘ragtime’, she displays uncommon dynamic range & lyrical clarity. guests include howe gelb, m ward & members of my morning jacket & calexico. deluxe cd features 3 bonus tracks. ‘the most emboldening & endearing portrait of herself yet’ 9/10 – uncut.
