Cat Power is…well lack for a better term, “Out Of This World!!” Her voice is pure rawness and chalk full of confidence. She’s an abstract artist that stay’s honest a true to her music. Her lyrics not always easy to interpret, but the simplicity in her lyrics showcase’s her brilliance. She’s no manufactured artist on the mainstream circuit. She is something all her own and I love that.
She draws a lot of her inspiration from American artist’s such as Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Moby Grape and other folk music. The only thing better than her own music, are her amazing covers by some of these great American icons. She takes these songs and recreates them into her own modern style.
Now, I have most likely featured “Metal Heart” by Cat Power before, but honestly it is that great!! I have had this song on blast for day’s on end, and I will never tire of her haunting voice and the words that she sings.
