Live From Austin TX

Case, sometime member of Canadian indie stars the New Pornographers and a country singer of choice for lots of indie kids, sticks mostly to rootsier stuff on this largely unplugged live record. Though her big voice commands attention, she could stand to employ a little more nuance every now and then, and you wish Case wasn't set on so much slow, swooning material. But classic-sounding cuts like "Look for Me (I'll Be Around)" win you over, and most people who got down with that Jenny Lewis record can find pleasure in aching alt-country ballads like "Hex."
