Detour

Neko Case

Though she's just released her first live album, The Tigers Have Spoken, Neko Case is already back in the studio. Dave Elfving tracked her down in Arizona; they talked of politics, music, art, and, obviously, the new live album.

Dave would like to thank WLUW, Chicago's independent community radio station for the use of their studio, without which this interview would not have been possible. Listen at 88.7 FM, or online anywhere in the world.


Press play to listen.
