Cat Power - Sun

Officially hits streets Sept. 4th.

You can stream it now. Or explore other avenues, just don't tell Scumbo.

El Mel was underwhelmed, looks like others managed to clear the wax out of their ears first:

I need more time with the middle section, but the first and last few songs are all great. And WTF Iggy Pop?

So yeah, this is great. I'm in the same boat on the middle section (Always on my own/Real Life/Human Being) not quite clicking yet. It's not as immediate/catchy/crazy as the stuff at the beginning and end; actually they may be the most "traditional" sounding Cat Power songs on the album. I have started to come around to Always On My Own; it works nicely as an interlude after the all out poppiness of the first four songs.

As I said in the Random Thread, I am blown away by it. I listened to it for the first time last night and then listened to it three more times in a row. I rarely do that except with a new Radiohead or U2 record, so something has to knock my socks off for that to happen.

I haven't really delved into it lyrically yet but am just really loving the whole groove and sound of it.

I couldn't figure out who that male voice was, so now I know.

Break up records are the best.

I need this in my hands on Sept. 4.

I liked her last two albums quite a bit (You Are Free and The Greatest) when they came out, but admittedly haven't had any desire to listen to either in years. Was planning on passing on this despite liking the lead single, but you jerks have talked me into checking the stream out.

Streamed it once yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it as it was playing. Lot of variety. And moments that came pretty close to being beats. Will defs buy.

It doesn't really feel like a break up album, to me at least. I guess I can hear it in the lyrics a bit, tho I'd say they're more of the "I'm OK and moving on" variety rather than "I'm sad and bummed." That's probably also because of the upbeat production.

Right, I just meant that it's the post-breakup creative output.

I am reminded of Boy by the intro to Cherokee.

That's most likely just me, though.

I feel the same. Very promising album. And that Iggy Pop bit is fabulous.

I'm pretty sure Chan Marshall is singing "fuck meeeeeee" in the (heavily autotuned) outro to 3,6,9. What. The. Hell.

I'm a little lukewarm on Manhattan, and Aways On my Own and Real Life are growing on me. The rest is really strong, imo.

Eleven minutes of Nothin But Time is as good as twelve minutes of One Sunday Morning (Wilco). Love the piano groove.
