Hit by Bjork err Sugarcubes is f***in ace.
Neko Case, a youngish woman from Virginia, since based in Chicago. Her voice is unbelievably beautiful and haunting - it has the clarion quality of Patsy Cline, with a kind of post-modern existential toughness. I can't understand why she's not a superstar - she's a fine songwriter and quite good looking too.
