SYNDICATE

Note: This is Neko’s fourth studio album and first since 2002’s Blacklistedicon. Since then, she’s become equally, if not better, known as the female voice of The New Pornographersicon.
Sound: She mines the depths of American folk, country and gospel to provide the backdrop for her dark, poetic storytelling, which is driven by her distinctively strong and resonant vocals.
Heavy Rotation tracks:The Needle Has Landedicon“; “John Saw That Numbericon
Medium Rotation tracks:Hold On, Hold Onicon“; “Dirty Knifeicon“; “That Teenage Feelingicon“; “Maybe Sparrowicon
Recommended: The sullen mood and tone of Neko’s solo work sharply contrasts her bright and chirpy work with The New Pornographers, but the deep conviction and soul in her voice is truly captivating. Plus, some peppier moments and an average track length of about 3 minutes keep the vibe from getting too somber. Just getting to hear her sing for 36 minutes is reason enough to buy Fox Confessor Brings the Flood.
Grade: A- (Top 20 Albums of 2006 Candidate)
