Neko Case On World Cafe

Neko Case's new album, The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You, expands upon the fiercely intelligent singer-songwriter's gifts for music that's both innately infectious and rooted in intense, accessible emotions. Wednesday's installment of World Cafe features an intimate session with Case and her favorite collaborator Kelly Hogan — plus Eric Bachmann (Crooked Fingers, Archers of Loaf) accompanying on keyboards and guitar.

Aside from the stunning set, the session features an insightful conversation with the singer-songwriter. During a far-reaching discussion, Case delves into the depression that influenced the writing of the album and touches on everyday life at her farmhouse in Vermont.
