Summer Babe.


I'm loving these portraits of Cat Power.* Loving the tan, the eyeliner and the brown hair that's gone golden in the sun. Roll on the summer...

*I don't love her music, though. In fact the only time I've seen her perform I thought she was awful. Is there anything I should be listening to that might change my mind?

  1. I think her 'You Are Free' album is good late-night listening when you're by yourself. Reminds me of hot summer nights back in 2003/2004 :)

  5. Thanks ladies! I'll check these recs out today. I saw her on Jools Holland doing a cover of New York New York and it made me want to sellotape my ears closed.

  6. My favourite songs are Metal Heart off Moon Pix & Salty Dog off the Covers Record. She is a beauty but I know what you mean, she's so changeable - booze/stubbornness make her go from good to shit to depending on will. I've seen her live twice, and once she cried through two songs and left. It was not fun.
