Neko Case | New LP Video Teaser

June 6, 2013 at 11:18 pm Leave a comment

Neko Case posted a video on facebook and at her official website with the message “HEY, LOOK!!! IT’S FINALLY DONE!!” I’m assuming she means she finished with her first record in the last four years, the follow up to 2009’s “Middle Cyclone”. The record title seems to appear at the end of the video: “The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight. The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You”. And the song must be the one alluded to in a recent NPR interview. Judging by the lyrics the song is “Where Did I Leave That Fire”. The song sounds isolated, contemplative and aquatic. Apparently, the pinging you hear is actually a sample of a submarine, because the sound of the original demo sounded very other-worldly to Neko. I think it’s a fantastic teaser track, the end of the track falling away into some of those eery white-noise sonics that remind me of Wilco’s “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot”. The lyrics of “Where Did I Leave That Fire” appear briefly in written form in the video clip, but can also be heard clearly in its ghostly out-of-body desire: “A chill ran through me / And I grabbed on tight / That was when I left my body for good / I shook off all the strength I’d earned / I wanted so badly not to be me / I wanted so badly not to be me / Where did I leave that fire?” Note: Photos are screen captures from the video. — David D.
