There was quite a bit of excitement attached to the concert with Cat Power on the main stage during the island's second day.
The experienced 41 years old rocker from Atlanta has been on the wish-list of the festival for many years, although she has a reputation for delivering highly uneven live performances. Problems with social anxiety, addictions and frayed nerves made her often reluctant to play live, but a personal setting with breakups and economic problems have again lured her out of the way. And with this year's critically acclaimed album, Sun in the guitar case, it finally worked out for the festival. Insofar as Cat Power should live up to its name as a four-legged, it's not like something purring cat, but rather as a lone wolf on musikkprærien. She poses albeit on stage with a full band in the back, but even if they are coordinated appears she is not one of the gang. That all eyes are on her, making sure she seems uncomfortable much of the concert. Only at the end, she has been properly warmed, and then she must return almost pulled off stage. Despite the protagonist seems easier bothered by being the center of attention, she has also something relaxed and cool about them, found only in rockers who have been out in rough weather before. Whiskey Marinated voice, black leather jacket, black jeans, welding bed and plenty of black eyeliner, could soon become a rock cliché. But not for Cat Power. She carries both style and voice with the same authenticity. And her many dearly bought experience in life, she reacted to the musical value in the form of an impressive amount of good songs. Although Cat Power seems to save some of the forces on the island, there are still a lot of nerve in what she does, even between songs. Like when she rasping voice announces that it is an honor to be on stage, "alive and kicking". When you know that it's all about pretty but a courtesy phrase. The dark clouds that seem to hover over the head of Cat Power at any time, allow even the more excited the songs from the new album carries with it a good dose of melancholy. It also makes the concert moment are more dyrbart. Because you know really whether there will be a next time.

Review (translated from Norwegian)
http://www.vg.no/rampelys/artikkel.php?artid=10119008

Chan Marshall (41) has been Øya great desire for many years. She has been a semi-legend in the indie world since the early 1990s, which corresponds perfectly with the island's profile. And she covered the main stage more than good enough Thursday night. Certainly she seems nervous when her female guitarist opens the ballet with the melancholy tones of "The Greatest," while the main character lurking almost apologetically into the scene in all black, only broken by her own personal mark in pink leather jacket on the back. eyebrows are markedly below the bleached hair. Cat Power looks as if she has lived a full life already, right after passing forty. Which of course she also made ​​stronger than you and me. She treats her own alcohol from the start of the 2000s, midway through the concert, the "3,6,9" she sings with closed eyes on "the monkey on my back," a symbol of addiction that one might deny. Shortly after, she reminds us to thank for that we are alive - "alive and kicking". She certainly seems to think so. At all shows Cat Power much of the personal side that has made ​​her a favorite for so many years. But she hides behind an uncomfortable body language in the initial "The Greatest" which slowly builds up to a greater redemption than her own concentration can very start. Subsequent "Cherokee" - A mildly amazing song - suffer the same fate, Cat Power itself not able to exploit the explosive power that this song contains. Once tredjelåt come, "Silent Machine" with its hook end glam-groove, grabs her guitar and seems to relax more when she has a place other than his trouser pockets to keep your hands in. From there on out dig herself deeper and deeper into the intensity we know she has inside. From the stage tunes all much tougher than the plate, much of the electronics are gone and the alluring vokalpåleggene that she is so famous for, is almost absent. Certainly missing part of the fine nuances of last year's "Sun", but still - it's the bare Cat Power fortunately we see in the second half of the concert. A concert that she concludes with "Ruin" and an equally mournful cheerful smile about mouth very start as she throws flowers to the public. A special session. And by and large a very nice one.

Review (translated from Danish) and Picture
http://gaffa.dk/anmeldelse/74909


The 41-year-old Chan Marshall, whose stage name Cat Power, managed to sing through an incredibly special concert with outlandish comments along the way, which sometimes caused concern for us who saw her show. Smiling with two cups of tea in one hand went Cat Power on stage and seemed apparently full of vigor and energy, but it turned out the way that she was not entirely to be trusted and sane. Or what was it really happened?

Cat Power acted with strange nervous features and an uncontrollable hand that constantly took care of the nose or convulsive movements bent, stretched or shaped into a fist, as if in slow motion lashed out at his own and hit her on the chin, while she sang their way through tracks like "The Greatest," "Cherokee," "Manhattan" and "369" which was the musical highlights during the concert. She had her incredibly powerful voice to the stage, which she used and folded out full power some of the time, but it was not enough to carry a concert where she otherwise proved to be both distracted and lack of presence. Maybe this was why she came with its many strange comments along the way, as when she, in a pause between numbers, muttering "Thank you" with a constructed smile, then quickly inject an "I'm sorry." Hmm ... sorry, for what? Her unease and tension was unfortunately so disruptive that it overshadowed her singing talent that may otherwise rather reminiscent of both Lucinda Williams and Marianne Faithfulls, the latter which she has sung backing vocal for the song "Hold On, Hold On" written by Neko Case. However, there were moments that made ​​us forget the turmoil as when the band and an obvious Gregg Foreman on guitar was loud and raw rock 'n' roll well up and running. It was as if she fell more down, the wilder it was, but then turned the disturbing gestures and uneasy unit back and destroyed her show. Too bad she was not in proper form at Øya, even if those numbers showed that she has the ability, like when she and the band played their version of The Birthday Party's dismal "Shivers", but it was unfortunately too late to save the odd concert and overshadow her behavior. Towards the end labeled else that she had come so well up in gear that she would not stop. Or maybe it was just a desperate attempt to prove that she actually has something to offer, as she very specific signals to the scene crew'et to the left that she we finish with two songs. But after she has thrown flowers to the audience in the song that ends with the goat, and waving, puts the festival dj "New Value Flow" on with Kanye West and Pusha T. It was a tragic experience with such a lack of Cat Power, who else we can hear on her album, and unfortunately we only saw glimpses of in her appearance - without klovnekostumet.

Review
http://thequietus.com/articles/13058-oya-nights-live-report-from-oslo-part-two

Next up Cat Power is as sharp as a die. Imperiously assured and backed by a superb band who bring out the absolute best in her post Jukebox material, mainly culled from Sun. Her voice gets better as she gets older, clearly - and I have a gut feeling her best years as an artist are still in front of her. Let's not beat around the bush here; Chan Marshall has had problems to deal with over the years - including recently - something that used to make going to watch her play live too difficult a prospect sometimes. While an audience doesn't owe an artist the same care of duty as concert venues, management, promoters and labels but the audience is still a collective of willing participants in what can feel like Roman entertainment sometimes. (To what extent all of us are uneasy participants in musicians' private lives is a question worth asking ourselves every time we listen to a song like '3,6,9', or 'Rehab' by Amy Winehouse for that matter.) So it's pleasing for a lot of different reasons to see her well again. Man, she really does bestride the narrow stage like a damn colossus when she's firing on all cylinders. Pay respect to the never more aptly named POWER - the best performer of the festival.

Bold added by me.
