Neko Case, Dodos Recommended Member Picks All Ages Early Warnings (Music) Image

When: Tue., May 13, 7:30 p.m. 2014

Neko Case has never been a shrinking violet, and on her new album, The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You (Anti‑), she sounds more forceful than ever, using her music to work through the dark, conflicted emotions she digs up. On the strutting, ultracatchy “Man,” she appropriates Bo Diddley’s macho declarations to deliver a feminist punch, declaring herself to be a man (“as in a citizen of mankind”) and asserting, “A woman’s heart is the watermark / Of which I measure anything.” —Peter Margasak, 2013

Neko Case interviewed Mavis Staples in 2013 for Arist on Artist.
