Georgia native Kelly Hogan, and the one-time fronter of The Jody Grind and Rock*A*Teens, croons a type of tunes that she’s dubbed “makeout music” and which falls effortlessly amid country, jazz, soul, and classic pop influences. Hogan signed to Chicago’s Bloodshot Records shortly after arriving in the late ’90s, releasing two full lengths. Now with ANTI- Records, Hogan will release I Like To Keep Myself In Pain in June, which will be her first solo album since 2001’s Because It Feel Good. The second track off the album, “We Can’t Have Nice Things,”—written for Hogan by Jack Pendarvis and Andrew Bird—premièred onPitchfork in early March. Currently living in Southern Wisconsin, Hogan is also a full-time member of Neko Case’s backup band, a badass title in and of itself.
