Yesterday we gave you the Rock Band 2 version of Neko Case’s “People Got A Lotta Nerve.” Today we have Middle Cyclone‘s spare, sad title track and its fragile-sounding music box and Case’s lyrics about spilled water and internal storm clouds. Also, you saw how she went into the country with a bunch of pianos to make the record. After downloading “Middle Cyclone,” you can stream the whole collection and check out the results, including “Marais La Nuit,” which closes the album out beautifully with 30 minutes of a nighttime cricket chirps.
