Cat Power – “Manhattan (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)” (Feat. Angel Haze)
On Cat Power’s 2012 album Sun, Chan Marshall flirted with dark, atmospheric electronic pop textures that had never previously touched her music. And on a remix of the Sun standout “Manhattan,” the Canadian dazed-rap producer Ryan Hemsworth has pushed the song’s sonics even further into a drifting, gasping thump. Young pitbull rapper Angel Haze adds a rat-tat-tat opening verse, and the whole thing is just intoxicating. Listen below.
Sun is out now on Matador.
