Neko Case Debuts Animated Video For "Curse of the I-5 Corridor"

Today, Neko Case releases the NSFW animated video for the “winding, mysterious” (Pitchfork) “Curse Of The I-5 Corridor.” The Mark Lanegan duet comes from Neko’s “unexpected, lush” (LA Times) new album ‘Hell-On,’ and the clip features an array of anthropomorphic genitalia.

Watch “Curse Of The I-5 Corridor” (directed and produced by Xan Aranda, with animation by Janice Chun) here:

Also today, Song Exploder posts its new episode where Thao Nguyen of Thao & The Get Down Stay Down sits down with Neko to break down ‘Hell-On’ track “Last Lion Of Albion” — listen here: http://songexploder.net/neko-case
