Cat Power - Sun
This product is currently sold out.
Instead of working with veteran musicians, Chan Marshall wrote, recorded, and produced Sun on her own, added electronic instruments to her repertoire, and enlisted Cassius's Philippe Zdar to help with the mixing duties, which he did with a minimum of interference. While it's miles away from The Greatest's retro-soul, Sun isn't Cat Power-goes-electro, either. Anyone fearing relentless house beats or an onslaught of cheesy synths should have their fears calmed by the end of the opening track. She's clearly got through a lot personally in the six year hiatus before this album, as these songs seem to be the meeting point between a stormy past and optimism for the future.
