New Neko Case MP3: It's Jangly

I'm a few days late on this, but here is the lead single from the new Neko Case album, Middle Cyclone. Love the 12-string guitar sound, which, to me, is the apex of that type of sound we music writer types sometimes (perhaps too often) refer to as "jangly." See also: "Byrds-y."

For every blog that posts the MP3, Case's label, Anti-, will donate $5 to Best Friends Animal Society. Sure, it's still marketing, but at least it's marketing with a charitable side effect. More on that here. Album's out Mar. 3, sweet artwork and all. (Reminds me a little of that scene in Death Proof where Zoe Bell's on the hood of the Challenger, albeit without a sword.)
