'The Worse Things Get': Life Lessons From Neko Case

Courtesy of the artist

Originally published on Sun September 1, 2013 5:51 pm

  • Listen To Neko Case Discuss Her New Album

On her latest album, The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You, singer Neko Case lays her heart — and her healthy sense of humor — bare. It's a deeply personal record that, among other things, offers intimate, sometimes wry meditations on the recent loss of both of her parents and a grandmother. NPR Music's Stephen Thompson and I spoke with Neko Case about the music, and shared questions from listeners, in this interview that we originally webcast live on Aug. 29.

First Listen: Sly And The Family Stone, Highlights From 'Higher!'

Sly & The Family Stone's new career-spanning anthology, out August 27, is titled Higher!
Herb Greene Courtesy of the artist

Originally published on Wed August 28, 2013 4:13 pm

The story of Sylvester Stewart — we call him Sly Stone — is that of a great urban engineer who launched out of the Bay Area in 1967 with a series of bridge-making hits: fusing rock to rhythm and blues, bringing jazz and funk into the mainstream with a band that was black and white, male and female. The story takes a weird corner and ends (or at least peaks) with some chattery scary masterpieces, isolated midnight moanings, fear and dread as universal in the '70s as love had been a few years before.

First Listen: Bob Dylan, Highlights From 'Another Self Portrait (1969-1971)'

Bob Dylan in 1970, the year he released his 10th studio album, Self Portrait. A new collection, Another Self Portrait (1969-1971), comes out August 27.

If Bob Dylan's long career as a genius of the American spirit has taught us anything, it's that one fan's trash is another one's treasure. "I never looked at songs as 'good' or 'bad,' only different kinds of good ones," he once said. Dylan's music, from the magpie folk of his early years to the historically conscious balladry of his current albums, has always reminded us that our legacy includes not just ennobling beauty, but also minstrelsy, dirty blues, sentimental sappiness and rama-lama-ding-dong.

First Listen: Okkervil River, 'The Silver Gymnasium'

Okkervil River's new album, The Silver Gymnasium, comes out Sept. 3.
Ben Sklar Courtesy of the artist

Originally published on Wed September 4, 2013 8:10 am

It's human nature to romanticize a specific time and place in the past — a moment when everything felt just right, or opportunities were laid out like a banquet. For Okkervil River's Will Sheff, it's been impossible to let go of Meriden, N.H., circa 1986: That tiny town is where he spent his childhood (he turned 10 that summer) and where his parents taught at an area boarding school.
