Cat Power – Sea Of Love

Chan Marshall has been recording for over a decade as Cat Power. She has incrementally announced herself to the world through increasingly dramatic releases. Her talent has a two-pronged dimension to it. She not only writes great compositions but also has a gift for making the songs of others her own. ‘Sea Of Love’ is slowed down to a snails pace, sparingly delivered with a couple of chords and a floating vocal that hovers in the air like a hummingbird. This was the closing track from Marshall’s ‘The Covers Record’, a remarkable piece of work that saw her interpret work by artists such as the Rolling Stones, the Velvet Underground and the underrated Moby Grape. Cat Power deserves to a star, her last 2 records ‘You Are Free’ and ‘The Greatest’ are unconditionally wonderful. The joy of the releases does need time to take hold but when you get there you’ll realise that this particular Marshall matters. KD
