Since its release was first announced in November, 2005, Neko Case’s forthcoming album - ‘Fox Confessor Brings The Flood” (March 7/Anti- Records) - has been a source of spirited discussion online.

• Earlier today, Pitchfork Media posted an exclusive interview in which Neko revealed her plans for a podcast. “I’ve wanted to have a radio show forever,” says Case, “[with a podcast] you can play ‘Gold Digger' by Kanye West next to Bessie Griffin and the Gospel Pearls next to some Disney kids' record, along with Bulgarian folk singing. You can have it all in one show...I'm very excited about it." Read the full interview here:

• Last week, when Anti- Records posted a free mp3 of “Star Witness” - a haunting, hyper-real ballad that plays like a lifetime flashing before your ears - the Neko chatter kicked into high gear. You can hear the song for yourself here:

• And you can read what some of our favorite bloggers had to say about Neko below:

Skattterbrain - “speculated to be one of this year’s best releases....I just can’t deny that voice.”

Some Velvet Blog - “spiritual, poignant...pure like snow.”

Coolfer - “’Anti- knows a thing or two about putting out challenging, quality albums.”

A Boy And His Blog - “Neko’s voice is absolutely gorgeous on this record.”

• And going back to November, when Neko premiered new songs from ‘Fox Confessor’ at NYC’s Joe’s Pub, Brooklyn Vegan hailed her “beautiful” performance and posted over twenty photos from the show, which you can view here:
