Neko Case and The Dodos

Neko Case and the Dodos are no stranger to each other. A few years back, the San Francisco-based folk-rock duo of Meric Long and Logan Kroeber toured in support of Case's part-time power-pop supergroup, the New Pornographers. After that tour, Case lent her voice to a handful of tracks on the group's 2011 release, No Color. Taking quite a departure from her solo material and New Pornographers tracks, Case's siren voice haunted the background of the album, and that actually proved a good thing. Long's signature, blues-influenced guitar-picking technique has always paired nicely with Kroeber's stormy, rattling percussion. When the two combine, they create a beautiful racket of their own with just a drum set and an acoustic guitar. The band recently finished recording a sixth album, so expect them to break out new songs this time around. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
