Neko Case's albums play like chapters in one continuous story, full of characters, settings and emotions that define her ever-changing career. She's not contained to one genre, instead dabbling in punk, country, pop and alternative. Nor is Case contained to one project: She's a solo artist, singer in a pop group (The New Pornographers) and half of a country duo (The Corn Sisters). Case stands out as a singer-songwriter with the ability to reinvent herself on each new record, but tie them together through her unforgettable voice and powerful lyrics.

The latest chapter in Case's story is a solo album, Fox Confessor Brings the Flood, released in March 2006. The album is one of those rare pleasurable paradoxes: offbeat but faithful to the classics, artsy but accessible, emotional while remaining intriguingly playful.

This segment originally aired on July 19, 2006.
