No, it’s not a feline liberation movement (although that would be rad), but rather the on-going musical project of singer/songwriter Chan Marshall that spans the musical spectrum from punk and folk to blues and electronica. Known for her unconventional stage shows and moody tunes, Cat Power is the darling of the college scene and alternative (actual alternative) radio stations across the land. Her new album Sun entered the Billboard 200 at No. 10 last September and is rated four stars by both Slant and Rolling Stone. But we don’t need to sell you on Cat Power. One listen to “Cherokee” or “The Moon” and you’ll be ready for a long night of caterwauling.
