The major exception is her 2006 album Fox Confessor Brings the Flood, which broke through to hold a spot among my favorite albums of that decade.
But the albums she’s released before and since just haven’t had the same lasting appeal.
That includes Blacklisted, from which today’s SOTD is culled. It has a great torchy sound and beautifully showcases Case’s vocals… it just doesn’t make it to my speakers or headphones unless the Random iTunes Fairy looks its way.
I covet all the waning hours
all the lonely houses stand like monuments
when I’m walkin’ in the dark
I’m free to covet all I want
you’ve made it all so very dangerous
I can’t stay away
when I’m walkin’ under trees
I’m free to covet all I please
new moons in the alley
and its madness calls to me
if I meet you in the night
you’re free to covet all you like
don’t you try and stop me
I cling tightly
to this life
