DEBUT CD. Some writer sent us this CD from Canada and said "You should put this out!" After listening to it about 8400 times in office (over a two day period), we agreed.
The Virginian drifts between country crying-towel balladry, spitfire rockabilly dirt-fights, and big-as-all-outdoors, bummer-pop grandeur. Neko sings with a breezy, buoyancy on covers of Ernest Tubb ("Thanks A Lot"), Queen ("Misfire"), the Everly Brothers (the INFECTIOUS "Bowling Green") and originals penned by a stable of pals known as The Boyfriends.
To get the obligatory name-checking out of the way, her Boyfriends include members of Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, Smugglers, Zumpano, New Pornographers The Softies, and mucho more.
