Neko Case left the Boyfriends and Pornographers at the doorstep when she paid a special visit to our studios ahead of her show at the Pageant.

Case started playing music in punk bands while attending college for art and design in Vancouver, British Columbia and went on to join the New Pornographers in 1998. In addition to her work with the Pornographers, she has collaborated extensively with other artists, including Jakob Dylan, Andrew Bird and Laura Veirs, in addition to her solo work, often backed by her band, Her Boyfriends.

Case's latest album, "The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You," was released in 2013 to much critical acclaim and this Live at KDHX session includes two songs from that effort. Both acoustic gems are very much worth a listen.

"Calling Cards" has a dreaminess to it that begs you to close your eyes and just let it surround you like a warm blanket. That gentle cadence, however, is in contrast to the more urgent and heavier "Local Girl." The quick timed chorus is reminiscent of girl groups of the past, but it's only reminiscent of what you've heard before, it's also a brand new discovery to get excited about.

The session is also noteworthy as Kelly Hogan, who often collaborates with Case and other artists like Iron and Wine, provided the sumptuous backing vocals and Eric Bachmann, of Crooked Fingers and Archers of Loaf, backed Case on acoustic guitar.
