Neko Case gives MAKE some lovin’

Indie rock/ artist Neko Case gave MAKE a shout-out during a recent CBC Radio 3 Sessions podcast. She was on the show promoting her new record, Middle Cyclone. Host Tariq Hussain asks her about the unusual instrumentation used on the title track. Turns out, they used “programmable” music boxes, the little paper-tape music machines where you can stamp the rolls yourself to compose your own music. They used 15 of these machines. She goes on to tell people you can get the boxes from the MAKE magazine website. I think what she’s referring to is this item that Phillip posted a ways back.
