The Virginian  performed by Neko Case and Her Boyfriends  1997

This track is from Neko Case's first solo effort of the same name.

Case was born in Virginia, raised in Olympia, Washington, and now lives in Chicago.

She did a degree in fine arts at the Emily Carr School of Art and Design in Vancouver, BC. It was in Vancouver that she joined grrll group Maow who recorded two CDs for Mint Records.

After Maow disbanded Case recorded her alt. country album 'the Virginian' also for Mint.

'The Virginian' is an astonishing song from a great solo debut by gifted artist.

Set Out Running  performed by Neko Case and Her Boyfriends  2000
Composed by Neko Case / Local Rabbits

'Set Out Running' is from Neko Case's second album 'Furnace Room Lullaby'. The album was recorded for Mint Records in Canada and is licensed to Bloodshot Records in the US.

Case has matured as a writer and 'Set Out Running' is proof. It is a haunting song of love, loss and fear, and never fails to move me I listen to it.

Keep an eye-out for a new release from Case. It is called 'Blacklisted' and is set to be released in the summer of 2002.

Neko Case and Her Boyfriends are currently on tour opening for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

Light Enough to Travel  performed by the Be Good Tanyas  2001
Composed by Geoff Berner / Kolakovsky Music

'Light Enough to Travel' is from 'Blue Horse', the debut album from the Be Good Tanyas.

The Tanyas are are Frazey Ford, Samantha Parton, and Trish Klein, and hail from Vancouver, BC, Canada.

They sing up tempo folk / bluegrass, and have been received with wild acclaim in both Canada and the UK.

'Light Enough to Travel' is representative of the Blue Horses. I guarantee it will get your toes tapping and hips swaying.

  07 Jan 04 ·umbrellasfollowrain: There's something about the attitude of this song that I love. The song is originally written by this guy who only plays and composes on accordian. I heard him play once on CBC Radio and he brought his two kids because he couldn't afford a babysitter and the kids kept talking all the way through his songs. This is perfect mixed tape fodder. For that driving mix you're giving to your best gal friend.
capsized  performed by Sarah Harmer  2000
Composed by Sarah Harmer

This song is haunting. The lyrics are about loss and are bouyed by a simple arrangement of guitar and organ.

I like this album more with each listen.

'You Were Here' is the first solo album from Ms. Harmer who is also one of the principle members of a Canadian folk/pop group called 'Weeping Tile'.

from You Were Here (Cold Snap/Universal in Canada - Rounder Records)

Weakened State  performed by Sarah Harmer  2000
Composed by Sarah Harmer

'Ballsy' is the only word to describe this song. Yes, 'ballsy' like all of Liz Phair's songs...'Weakened State' is hard and aggressive which makes it stand-out from the other tracks on this outstanding album.
