Twangy female vocalist for those of us with a lower register, Neko Case (of New Pornographers fame) builds dark portraits with her lyrics in Deep Red Bells - "A hand print on the driver's side, It looks a lot like engine oil And tastes like being poor and small And popsicles in summer"

...but she alternates with lightness as on I Missed the Point: "I'm so sorry That I missed the point Of this pageantry, But I'm grateful That you love me."

Great music to belt out in the shower or on the way home from work, also check out Middle Cyclone, her 4th studio album. Consistently good tunes and lyrics.​
