Case always manages to reveal some new topographical feature in this terrain, and so “Night Still Comes” features not only a parallax layering of voices but also a wryly incisive self-reckoning that’s not bound to any concrete confessional language.
“If I puked up some sonnets/ Would you call me a ‘miracle’?” she asks with signature frankness. But it’s that cathedral chorus that may be the most revealing and confounding: “You never held it at the right angle.” Whatever “it” is, she’s still looking for the right angle herself.
