Cat Power In The Studio

She took fifth in our silly little indie pageant, but Chan Marshall’s surely number one when it comes to putting her indelible stamp on a cover tune. This isn’t a proper video, though with Jukebox a little more than a month away, it doesn’t look like we’ll see much else from a promo standpoint. We’ll take what we can get. And what we got is footage of Chan Marshall making like James Carr on a Dan Penn and Chips Morman tune at the dark end of the studio. Bad pun aside, it really is dark in there.

Unlike the recalled MP3 of Chan’s “Song To Bobby” (not to be confused with her cover of a song by Bobby) you can actually hear something here — and boy is it goose-bumpy sweet.

Jukebox is out 1/22 on Matador.
