As you are surely aware, indie-folk mainstay Cat Power returned this year after a lengthy absence. She returned with a new record on Matador, Sun (TMT Review), that wasn’t quite indie-folk, but also wasn’t quite not indie-folk. Do you dig? I understand if you do not dig. What I am getting at, is Cat Power has re-appeared in the world of modern music.
When you re-appear in the world of modern music, it’s generally accepted that you’ll do some touring. Just seems right. With all the confident acceptance of a strong handshake, Cat Power is doing some touring this fall. Particularly, she is going to Europe and the UK, the latter of which she has not set a foot on for four years. At least, she has not set a foot there with intent of playing music. There always exists the possibility that Cat Power took a trip to go see Big Ben or something. Now, imagine a picture of Cat Power standing in front of Big Ben, grinning ridiculously. It’s a good picture.
