Cat Power – “Cherokee (Nicolas Jarr Remix)”
We’ve heard two tracks from Sun, Cat Power’s forthcoming album, and both “Ruin” and “Cherokee” embrace pieces of pop music that we might have never expected to cross Chan Marshall’s radar: textured synths, polished programmed beats, Auto-Tune. On his remix of “Cherokee,” the young ambient-electronic auteur Nicolas Jaar pushes those elements further, bringing Marshall into a dazed synthetic wonderland. Download the original track and the remix below.
Sun is out 9/4 on Matador. It’s fucking great, and you should be excited.
