Neko Case picked up a Grammy nomination for her excellent sixth LP, The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You, which comes as no surprise since the thing made SPIN's 50 Best Albums of 2013. Along the way, the New Pornographer has blessed us with a clip for "Night Still Comes," a hilarious Funny or Die session version of "Man," and a swaggering Jimmy Fallon performance. Now she lets loose a lyric video built around "Calling Cards," a gorgeous and bleary-eyed tribute to romance that seems to be directed at another songwriter. The song is a tear-jerker as is, but paired with vintage shots of loved ones sharing each other's company ... well, just make sure that tissue box is handy. Via Stereogum.
