Although I don’t usually pester my fellow CreamAleDrinkers with my eccentric musical taste I couldn’t resist blogging this for a worthwile cause (and how can you not Love Neko Case?): Today, we are especially happy to bring you “People Got A Lotta Nerve,” the first single from Neko Case’s forthcoming album Middle Cyclone (out March 3), because for every blog that reposts the song and/or iLike user who adds it to their profile, Neko Case and ANTI– will make a cash donation to Best Friends Animal Society.

Check out Neko’s song on the Best Friends Facebook page or our MySpace blog.

Download the song here.
