Tightly (2002) – Neko Case

In this celebration of nocturnal strolls that corrals the spirit of Patsy Cline’s “Walking After Midnight,” Neko Case delights in the freedom she enjoys under moonlit skies. Brimming with fondness for her leisurely vespertine pursuits, Case’s ardent voice cloaks the listener in luxurious reverb. Twang guitar, double bass, upright piano and brushed drums accompany her saunter along suburban streets, where she cherishes every moment of clarity in thought. Although there is an inherent danger in a woman walking alone at night, the stars, the darkness, the moon, the trees all accentuate her feelings, inspiring her to indulge her fancies. Still, even if she’s willing to entertain romantic midnight overtures, she is loath to sacrifice her latitude.
