The Covers Record

MATADOR Nov 29th 2019

Cat Power is the nom de plume of Chan Marshall. Her last record, "Moon Pix," was released in September 1998 and was hailed 'round the world as a paragon of modern songwriting. On "The Covers Record," Chan applies her remarkable interpretive skills to a wide variety of influences, accompanying herself on only piano or guitar. Almost gruesome in its melancholy (think "Pink Moon," "Drama Of Exile," "Music For A New Society..."), she de/reconstructs these songs often to the point of unrecognizability. The result is one of the most striking records we've heard in years, a masterpiece of mood, and another wonderful display of her extraordinary personality. Check out Chan's covers of tracks by the Rolling Stones, Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan, Smog, and more.
