Neko Case’s Fox Confessor Brings the Flood. Now, it’s not one I’d likely get my hands on had I got out for the big celebrations and I had a look online and copies were a little too rich. I have the CD, but it’s one of those albums that really needed to be in my collection. Cause I absolutely love it.
Anyway, Aaron and I have been exchanging emails the last couple of weeks. Mostly we wonder where the hell this thing is. Each time the mailman has knocked on the door I’ve had my hopes up. Got to the stage where I was looking at the door … poised to answer any knock around about the time the mailman was due. But the enthusiasm waned a bit the last two weeks. Saturday was different, though. The door chapped and I was racing (and I didn’t even get a chance to change out of my pyjamas).
They really put some effort into this too. It really is a wonderful looking package. Red vinyl in a nice gatefold sleeve. And an unexpected extra – a special Record Store Day slip mat.
