Cat Power: The Greatest
Buy! - (Matador)
Cat Power’s latest album is not only a head-turning surprise, it also sounds like her best album to date. Recorded in Memphis with help from some Southern soul musicians like guitarist Teenie Hodges and his bassist brother Flick (both of whom helped shape the sound of Al Green’s classic recordings), the album seamlessly blends Cat Power’s dusky vocals and melancholy balladry with soul-drenched arrangements colored with piano, horns and occasional silky strings, making for a modern indie version of Dusty Springfield’s classic Dusty in Memphis. 1/6/2006 - Don Yates
