Fox Confessor Brings The Flood

Album: Fox Confessor Brings the Flood (2006)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of Fox Confessor Brings the Flood. Most of the songs on the album are based on Neko Case's life experience from her childhood until her adult age, which she united with an Eastern Europe fairy tale. She told Uncut magazine: "That was the first record where there was a bit of a cohesive theme. I was obsessed with fairy tales from Eastern Europe. I loved the way they were cautionary and funny, but they weren't morality tales. They were based on common sense but were also twisted and hilarious, and they gave children credit to handle facts without Disneyfying them."
