The impromptu collaboration between Neko Case, k.d. lang, and Laura Veirs comes to The Joy Theater Sunday, and we have a pair of tickets to give away.
“Although [k.d.] lang has said they didn’t start with a theme, much of case/lang/veirs stems from this idea of relationships as wholesome forces,” writes Pitchfork critic Laura Snapes. “They” are Neko Case, k.d. lang, and Laura Veirs, who came together to release a collaborative album. “More than once, the presence of someone else is a revivifying power, peeling whoever’s singing away from the ledge, up off the rug. And despite each artist’s unique individual approach, they share a sensory approach to singing about these intimacies that’s completely intoxicating and oftentimes driven by natural imagery (like much of Case's best work).”
case/lang/veirs will play The Joy Theater Sunday, July 31. The album, Snapes writes, “isn’t a springboard or a resting place—it's a tribute to connection, communion, and reflection on the things that bind us. And it feels particularly significant and sanctuary-like for the fractured times that we live in. I just want, I wanna be here with you, they sing in unison. Not bracing for what comes next.”
