Relevant fact pulled from the memory of a thorough fan: Case graduated from the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, Canada. Thusly she does a lot of her own liner art and photography and stuff, and of course as everyone knows she has the world's best cover art on her last record, above. She's an art liker and maker. And lo and behold, the search engine tells us her two tat phrases combine to form the title of a 1935 painting by Emily Carr, which is just as lovely and light-hallucinatory as a lot of Carr's other work.
Wow. Check out the Vancouver Art Gallery to see lots more Carr art. - EMILY CARR

Neko Case is not the only awesome person to be inspired by this particular canvas, either!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
