Earworm: Neko Case - Dirty Knife

Damn, she's good. One of the things I like about Neko's stuff is that she's got a good handle on the darkness and mysticism of Southern lore; in that she sorta reminds me of Eudora Welty, Flannery O'Connor, and Mark Twain (when he wasn't being silly)--she even uses the apocalyptic imagery that had such a chokehold on Southern religion in "John Saw That Number." She's the real thing all right.
