Case/Lang/Veirs - Case/Lang/Veirs. I'm not a k.d. lang fan, and I'd never heard of Laura Veirs before, but I'll buy pretty much anything with Neko Case. This is a great album of folky alt-country (I guess?) anchored by some truly stellar singing. I like the Neko-led songs best, not surprisingly, but the tunes Veirs leads are very nearly as good. I mean, k.d. lang is very good, too. I just find her voice to be less engaging than those of the other two women.
I really like Laura Veirs' songwriting, and as I understand it, she was the primary writer for this album. If you're at all curious about her solo work, I highly recommend her Saltbreakers album.
Thanks for the tip! I will definitely check it out.
