Cat Power

Dark End Of The Street

Cat Power

“Time takes its toll”, she purrs like Vesper Lynd draping over a baby grand. Chan Marshall certainly laps up a challenge like it’s a silky saucer of Motown-milk. The fact she can transform a 1967 soul classic, performed by the likes of Aretha Franklin, into the unmistakable malted melodies of Cat Power, is testament to her striking intuition and timeless sound.
