Worse Things Get The Harder I Fight

Neko Case

Anti- release Neko Case’s first album in over four years, “The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You.”

The Worse Things Get is Neko’s most precise, urgent record to date, marked by a melodic immediacy, a loving embrace of the big rock gesture, and a lyrical frankness typified by first single Man, in which she warns “I’m a man… you’ll deal with me directly.”

The album was executive-produced by Case and recorded at Wavelab in Tuscon, as well as Portland, Los Angeles and with Phil Palazzolo in Brooklyn. Tucker Martine, Case and Darryl Neudorf mixed the album, with backing by guitarist Paul Rigby, bassist Tom V. Ray, vocalist Kelly Hogan and multi-instrumentalist Jon Rauhouse. Other guests include M. Ward, Steve Turner, Howe Gelb, and members of The New Pornographers, My Morning Jacket, Calexico, Los Lobos and Visqueen. In addition to eleven new songs written by Case, The Worse Things Get features a cover of Afraid by Nico.
