If you missed it, a clip from Kelly Hogan’s recent Music Lounge performance on WGN is now online here.
From World Cafe: “Kelly Hogan is a professional backup singer who spends a lot of time on the road with her friends Neko Case, Jakob Dylan,Andrew Bird, Robyn Hitchcock and many others. For her long-awaited new album, I Like to Keep Myself in Pain, Hogan recruited the aforementioned musicians and others — including M. Ward and the late Vic Chesnutt — to write the songs.
In this interview and session for World Cafe, Hogan describes how she finally got her own record deal — and recruited more than 40 musicians to help with I Like to Keep Myself in Pain.”

Kelly Hogan discussed “Dusty Groove”, “We Can’t Have Nice Things” and the title track from I Like To Keep Myself In Pain with homemade videos for Paste Magazine!
Earlier this month, Kelly Hogan and her band, James Elkington (on guitar), Casey McDonough (on bass) and Joseph Camarillo (on music stand) gave Jon Chattman of A-Sides at the Huffington Post a lesson in Music Badassness 101. Click to watch a performance of the album’s title cut, “I Like To Keep Myself In Pain” or an interview with Hogan herself.
“Twelve of the 13 tracks on the album were written by ridiculously talented musicians and songwriters (she penned the song “Golden”). Robyn Hitchcock wrote the title track, and she performed it on A-Sides last month. Filmed at the Music Conservatory, watch her and her band teach us all a lesson in badassness.” Huffington Post
“The real standouts are ‘Daddy’s Little Girl’, in which M Ward puts her inside the head of Frank Sinatra and the Jack Pendarvis-Andrew Bird collaboration ‘We Can’t Have Nice Things’ which places Hogan’s honeysuckle voice at the intersection of country, soul and ‘60s pop, where this gifted song interpreter resides ”
