We showed you Neko Case surfing a muscle car, sword in tote, for her new solo album Middle Cyclone. This “making of” teaser appears to be a tad gentler, until she describes locating themes for the the followup to 2006’s Fox Confessor Brings The Flood as akin to “locating a serial killer.” Of course it was. We also see Case in the creaky, pretty barn where she moved to record the album (check out the piano lineup and cardboard booth), live footage, Case talking about building an Eiffel Tower out of popsicle sticks, and explaining what she thinks it would be like to have a tornado fall in love with you (A: stormy, dangerous). She also finds time to check out bird nests, listen to the frogs, and smell the flowers.
Middle Cyclone is out 3/3 via Anti-.
