It's a Bird... It's a Tornado... It's Neko Case

Two music videos from one of my favorite singer-songwriters. Neko's voice is incredible, 
and she writes gorgeous music with haunting melodies and lyrics. On top of that, many of her songs 
feature animal imagery, including Lion's JawsThe Tigers Have SpokenMagpie to the Morning 
and I'm an Animal. Neko's latest Middle Cyclone has received Grammy nominations for Best 
Contemporary Folk Album and Best Recording Package, and on the 31 we'll find out if she won.

Both of these videos were animated by the siblings team of Paul and Julie Mortsad.
Maybe Sparrow was included in Neko's 2006 album Fox Confessor Brings the Flood.

Julie also created the cover artwork for the album.
Paul and Julie live in Vancouver and divide their time between animation, art and illustration.
