NEKO CASE made one trek through the U.S. last month, and is now busily making her way through Australia on her current tour. In March, she’ll be back stateside to continue promotion of her new Grammy-nominated album The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You, with American indie-rockers The Dodos (and their latest album, Carrier) in tow as her opening act. In other Case news, her recent appearance on Austin City Limits (a shared episode with Jason Isbell) is now online for you to view.

THE DEAD WEATHER – aka Jack White, The Kills’ Alison Mosshart, The Raconteurs Jack Lawrence, and QOTSA’s Dean Fertita – are working on their next studio album, although fans will have to wait until 2015 for its release. In the meantime, the band are passing along a special new double single featuring the tracks “Open Up” and “Rough Detective” on yellow jacket vinyl with a nifty picture sleeve.

SILVERCHAIR’S Daniel Johns has been collaborating with rapper 360 on a track called “Impossible,” which is being released with an accompanying Collider-produced music video in which both musicians portray themselves as hoodlums/nice guys in a dual role. Johns is also currently working on his own new solo album, which is expected for release later this year.
