Review (translated from german):
http://www.nzz.ch/aktuell/zuerich/zuercher_kultur/kult-und-karikatur-1.18107691

Every cult can be thought of as alternating between a central figure and the projections of fans. And it is not always clear what is at the beginning. At the beginning of the stage is empty - almost empty, after all, the company is ready. Already a musician and plays guitar, makes the loud sounds of a triad slow drip. Suddenly and then calls the audience cheers, as would a long-cherished dream has finally come true.

Indeed, under which a small, blonde American girl is released - limping and flitting as they become weak, and weaker in the spotlight. It is the 41-year-old Charlyn Marie Marshall aka Cat Power, which is the big wide stage obviously suspect. Or they distrusted the high mic stand? Anyway, she gets the microphone very quickly to the outside hit "The Greatest" will soon be on the right, outside left soon to sing. - And somehow seems also to affect her vocals. One hears not quite where they want and whether their painfully bright puffs per compacted into a musical statement. The melody sounds as if it had been processed several times in the process of composing with ink eraser. The acoustics, the sound blame? Or do you suggest in this wind-blown warble charm and understated?

For the fans of the indie aesthetic manifests as: Just the vocal blurring testify but of vitality and authenticity unsophisticated. Cat Power is just not just a mainstream puppet. It deviates from norms and standards - especially in their tangled recitatives. But they pressed onto the more emotional pedal (sometimes while the volume is turned up), forced their feelings - in advance the melancholy that runs like dizziness caused by the constant lament. Cat Power who else wins the sympathy of the audience by their child-woman naivety or borderline happiness, are located in the People's House on Thursday rather reserved. Without big words she jumps from one song to another. The repertoire is determined by the new album "Sun" and songs like "Cherokee", "Silent Machine," "Nothin 'But Time".

The CD is characterized by the attempt to bring poppier contours and electronic stringency in the music. But the new songs live sound almost like the old - rocky, folky with a Ruch of punk. The rather cumbersome backing adjusted the sound sometimes with multiple riffs and patterns, so that the songs seem like a messy roommate kitchen. But that does not fit poorly to Cat Power, sings the yes the real, everyday life - as an indie singer who sometimes acts like a caricature of itself.
