Omnipresence Aflame, Cat Power.

I struggle to recall the last time two pieces concerned one artist on the one same day, but similarly I struggle to recall an artist as exemplary as Cat Power. If you're yet to cocoon yourself in the luscious warmth of Sun, needless to say we'd suggest doing so before night falls ce soir. Although not an entirely spangly newbie, this gentle smoker entitled Fire could only be picked up alongside an iTunes download 'til it emerged earlier on today. It's darn rudimentary, but then maybe that's when Chan Marshall's at her most omnipotent as mistimed drum machines tug her spooked vocals outta time, as they consequently sound as though haunted by the lingering hype of Grimes. Yet more well worth basking in.

Cat Power's Sun is out now on Matador Records.
