Cat Power (Chan Marshall) released her 9th full-length record in late August. Having been a fan of hers since 98's Moon Pix, I was looking forward to hearing Sun. I finally picked it up yesterday (yeah, I'm a little behind this year). WOW! From start to finish this is an extraordinary release. She moved into a bold new direction with this one. Lots of big beats and synths, while still retaining her spooky songs and haunting vocals. Here's Sun's first video. It's got a certain hipster Mad Max vibe going on. If you like this song, you'll definitely dig Sun.
