As we pack our bags for the weekend (and try to escape to the most nationalistic bit of Scotland – friendly advice please…), we leave you with the new track by Neko Case which is taken from her forthcoming album ‘Hell-On’ which is due out June 1 via the ANTI label and features appearances from (in no particular order) Beth Ditto, k.d. Lang, AC Newman, Eric Bachmann, Kelly Hogan, Doug Gillard, Laura Veirs and Joey Burns. “That lot” as Alan Partridge would say. ‘Curse of the I-5 Corridor’ is an epic seven-minute affair and features some rather lovely vocals from Mark Lanegan. Have a good one dear readers.
