“I miss the smell of mystery, reverb leaking out of tavern doors and not knowing how the sounds were made,” Neko Case laments on “Curse of the I-5 Corridor,” an epic, doom-ridden romantic duet with Mark Lanegan from her latest album, Hell-On. The native of Tacoma, Washington, possesses a majestic voice that soars and sears through the bleak blue night like a beacon. But she also has a rich, lyrically surreal vision that — when combined with collaborations with her New Pornographers bandmate A.C. Newman, Laura Veirs, Archers of Loaf’s Eric Bachmann and especially Paul Rigby — gives her voice something meaningful to say. Images of mystery, animals, extinction and eternal romance course throughout the record, from the contemplative ballad “Halls of Sarah” and the hypnotic reverie “Gumball Blue” to the enigmatic musical riddle “Pitch or Honey” and Case’s rhapsodic homage to the “Last Lion of Albion.”
