Neko Case's voice sounds like it originates from the belly of Mother Earth herself. In her music, you can hear the roots of trees, the wisdom of ancient warrior bones, the shift of tectonic plates, molten lava and placid water. -NPR Music

Is there another songwriter so fearless and inventive? Bending decades of pop music into new shapes, Neko Case wields her voice like a kiss and her metaphors like a baseball bat. She has cast the fishing net of her career wide—from Seattle and Vancouver to Chicago and Stockholm, setting up her home base on a farm in New England.

Gathering power year after year, Neko sings with the fierce abandon of a newborn infant crying in a basket in the woods. Since escaping the labels of country and Americana, the gorgeous train-whistle vocals of her early career sit submerged in her later style, where their ghost can appear any minute. When her voice jumps an octave, it’s almost visible, like sparks at night. “I never knew where I wanted to go or what I wanted to do with my voice,” she says, “but I just wanted to do it so bad.”

With a career spanning over twenty years, she has famously collaborated with The New Pornographers and Case/Lang/Veirs in addition to releasing many critically acclaimed solo albums, including ‘Fox Confessor Brings The Flood’, ‘Middle Cyclone’ and most recently 2018’s ‘Hell-On’.

She’s doing it on her own terms, but the legacy she’s building is one that can stand up to music made by any other solo artist in her lifetime. Don’t look away; you never know what might happen. “I’m just trying,” she says, “to be myself as hard as I can.”

ABOUT INDIGO SPARKE

Indigo Sparke writes with a rare and reflective power, creating music that builds and bursts as she examines love, loss, grief, and a newly realized rage. Born in Australia and now based in New York, Indigo established herself in the Sydney music scene with her EP Night Bloom (2016). She has toured with Big Thief, had a song featured on the TV show Cloudy River, and performed across Australia and the U.S., including at the Splendour in the Grass Festival, a Tiny Desk Concert at NPR, and SXSW 2019 and 2021.

Indigo signed with Sacred Bones in early 2021, and made her label debut shortly after with Echo, which Pitchfork described as “a dark little star of intimacy and intensity.” In spring 2021, Indigo began work on her second album with producer Aaron Dessner (The National, Taylor Swift). That album, Hysteria, is packed with big guitars and layered instrumentation that act as lungs, giving every note breath underneath Indigo’s soaring vocals.
