The Ballad of Neko and Rose

It’s easy to think of Rose Melberg as an indie-pop matriarch – the musician behind Tiger Trap, The Softies, Go Sailor and plenty more great bands is certainly married to the genre’s jangling strums. But sometimes she cheats a little bit. Witness this, an alt-country collaboration with Neko Case (!), where Melberg’s soft backing vocals play nicely against Case’s, shall we say, twangier style.
