4.0 excellentYoung Buck | July 29th 12

Chan Marshall takes her creativity to an all time high and makes the most exciting record of her career.

0.0 Alex Beebe | December 6th 12

Once again, it certainly has been a while in-between albums for Chan Marshall, and a while for any artist in general. Thankfully though, Marshall always returns as Cat Power from her breaks with plenty of inspiration and more than a few tricks up her sleeve. Sun introduces some new ideas such as electronica, and digs deeper into ideas suggested on Cat Power's past outings. She never goes too heavy on the electronic beats though, Power just dips her feet in the water, never favoring one sound over the other, thus pushing her music forward in new directions without necessarily making complete commitments. Much like the big yellow orb it's named after, Sun exerts bright and warm rays of indie/electronic fusion; a sound that is forward-thinking for Cat Power, but doesn't discard her folky past in order to make changes. Something old, and something new, Sun is anything but a disappointment after six years.

Oh look another song driven by a drum machine. Oh look, another one. Oh look....another one......
