So tired of waiting That's the kind of sky Marshall got to be. It's a very heterogenous record and there are some creative high points, she seems comfortable and all... but I'm not quite convinced with some of the lyrics and melodies, which sometimes sound like a bit "disharmonic" . Spinning her years of tour-induced wanderlust into wisdom, Marshall offers them all some sage advice: "Sometimes you gotta do what you don't wanna do/ To get away with an unordinary life.".

‘Manhattan’ seems to evoke the city itself and ‘Silent Machine’ chugs along at a slow almost Nine Inch Nails style pace.

Here comes, here comes, here comes the Sun So when her ex commented that the material she was working on sounded like, I have been following Cat Power since Marshall's stunning "Nude as the News" single. Sun doesn't reach the heights (or more accurately, wallow in the depths) of Moon Pix, but more than anything else she's made, it feels like a companion piece to that record, a conversation with an older and wiser voice.

By the sixth minute, when Iggy Pop's voice comes in god-sized and benevolent, it's like some sort of peyote daydream where one of the faces on Mount Rushmore stoops to talk to you and has only the kindest things to say.
Here it comes, here it comes, it’s still warm Sun is the title track of the 2012 album Sun, Chan Marshall (Cat Power)’s first collection of new material since 2006. But it's "Hey Jude", too: Marshall wrote it to cheer up her ex's teenage daughter, and the longer it goes on, the truer its optimistic truisms ring, the stronger the urge to holler them along with the rest of of voices ("You wanna live!").

"When we were teenagers, we wanted to be the sky," she sang on her enduringly haunting 1998 record Moon Pix, her voice warbling at that moment as if she were delivering an elegy, like it's a shame we all at some point give up on those lofty and poetically illogical dreams. What's this? The ninth album from the American musician is garnering all sorts of solid praise and was recorded everywhere from Malibu to Paris.
