Gillian Welch or Neko Case?

Love both of them. Interested to see how many (few? ) around here know them both well enough to vote.

Re: Gillian Welch or Neko Case?

Excellent matchup infidel. These are two of my favourite "modern" artists (i.e., not classic rock period) and I absolutely love them both. It would be very easy to choose the can't decide option but I will try not too.

If forced to choose I would say Gillian. Not only is she an incredibly unique vocalist and gifted songwriter but she has a secret weapon: Dave Rawlings. His voice harmonizes perfectly with her and he is one of best guitar/banjo/mandolin players around. His contributions take her music to absolute other level. Check out their cover of Gram Parsons "Hickory Wind", it makes me choke up. And her most recent album (The Harrow and the Harvest) is the album of the year for 2011...everyone needs to check it out.

I would be remiss not to say a little about Neko too as this is a really really close call for me. Her albums have just kept getting better and better and you also have to give her bonus points for her work with the New Pornographers. Although their last album was a little weak I am sure they will return to form. Any fans of hers should go to youtube and check out the recent duets she did with Jim James of My Morning Jacket (including "Islands in the Stream" and "Stop Dragging My Heart Around")...they are a blast.

OK, I have said enough or I will be back to the can't decide option

I can't decide...wait, are we talking about their music? I still can't decide.

Re: Gillian Welch or Neko Case?

Very cool poll. I adore both artists. This is a tough one.

I'm going with Neko. I agree with bobbyg that Gillian has a tremendously unique voice and that so far, her new record is the album of the year. I just happen to think Neko's voice is just a bit better than Gillian's. Neko's voice is mesmerizing. The kind of voice that would make you fall in love with a girl before you ever even see her face.

On top of that, she is a terrific songwriter and I always enjoy the arrangements her and her band come up with. She is perfect.

Re: Gillian Welch or Neko Case?

Both are great modern day artists.
I'm taking Gillian only because she seems like a way better person. Neko always looks pissed off.

Re: Gillian Welch or Neko Case?

Neko, mainly because I'm more familier with her work. Gillian is on my catch up list.
