carrie - "cat power" (from the honey blue star lp, available for preorder here.)

i don't believe this song by carrie, aka laura becerra, is about cat power, aka chan marshall--although it might be one of those extended metaphors that i've heard english types prattle on about. at any rate, it probably hopes you know who cat power is, but such knowledge is not essential to enjoy this little ditty. indeed, this song would exist w/ or w/o the existence of chan, sounding as it does like juliana hatfield, ca. blake babies, being produced by kieran hebden, aka four tet. "cat power" slinks like a feline, and moves w/ the same slow, deliberate purpose, digging its way into your subconscious like so many claws into flesh.
