Neko Case | Night Still Comes

Two months ago Neko Case released the first single, “Man”, from off her upcoming album, “The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You”. Now there’s a second single, called “Night Still Comes”, a fantastic dusky number. The single comes with a video featuring the lyrics to the track, which exist somewhere between lovely and remarkable. Take this slow-rolling verse, with its lush rhyme and natural imagery: “There are so many tools that are made for my hands / But the tide smashes all my best-laid plans to sand.” The song appears to be about a relationship, appreciation, endings, loss, identity, inevitability, and finding comfort in the solitude of the woods. It’s one of the best tracks of 2013, it’s most cathartic, passionate moments growing out of the building of hushed vocals into a chorus that borders on spiritual awakening: “You never held it at the right angle”.  — David D. Robbins Jr.
