Jukebox by Cat Power

All eyes were on Cat Power after the breakout success of 2006’s ‘The Greatest’. What the one known to her mates as Chan Marshall delivered, two years down the line, was ‘Jukebox’, the second mostly-covers LP of her career. Tackling tunes from Bob Dylan, Hank Williams, Joni Mitchell and plenty others, Marshall also sprinkled in a couple of Cat Power originals for good measure here. The result is an album which aptly contextualises Cat Power’s blues-flecked indie-rock style.

6/10 Mingus 17 January 2008


Cat Power: 'Jukebox' (Matador) As you'd imagine these are songs you may find on Cat's Jukebox. Sung with the sort of sultry ease missing from a lot of the newer generation of female singer songwriters. Easily consumed and familiar to older ears maybe, backed by players who have been around the indie block if you will- Erik Paparazzi, Jim White, Gregg Foreman and Judah Bauer who compliment the bluesy, countrified versions of songs by Hank Williams, Frank Sinatra, James Brown, Billie Holiday, Janis Joplin, Nick Cave, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, also included is a new song written about meeting Mr Zimmerman for the first time. Famed for her apparent ability to interpretate songs of others this is strong collection that shows of that ability to the maximum. Maybe not one aimed squarely at 'the kids', this'll no doubt appeal to Q/Mojo reading dad rockers. Available as a single CD, double CD with extra tracks and vinyl formats.
