Cat Power – “The Greatest”

Cat_Power_The_Greatest Chan Marshall es Cat Power, poder gatuno como si dijéramos, y Chan es la poseedora de una voz entre sensual y dura que la hace única. Escuchaba este disco, “The Greatest” (2006) y me preguntaba por qué demonios Lana Del Rey ha triunfado comercialmente en todo el mundo y Cat Power no, la respuesta es sencilla se llama mercadotecnia, no tiene nada que ver con el arte. “The Greatest”, el sexto álbum de Cat Power, es una mezcla de country, soul, blues con la voz de Chan como protagonista y grabado en Memphis con veteranos músicos clásicos de la escena del Soul, lo que le da al disco un sonido muy especial. “The Greatest”, la canción (un temaz0, por cierto) consiguió que Cat Power tuviera cierta repercusión, pero no es la única que merece la pena, “Living Proof” y sobre todo “Lived Bars” son también temazos. A mi Cat Power me conquistó con este disco que me hizo recordar a Janis Joplin e incluso a Billie Holiday, por aquello de las voces atormentadas, y se quedó en mi lista de favoritas.

Once I wanted to be the greatest
No wind or waterfall could stall me
And then came the rush of the flood
Stars at night turned deep to dust

Melt me down
Into big black armor
Leave no trace of grace
Just in your honor
Lower me down
To culprit south
Make ’em wash a space in town
For the lead
And the dregs of my bed
I’ve been sleepin’
Lower me down
Pin me in
Secure the grounds
For the later parade
Once I wanted to be the greatest
Two fists of solid rock
With brains that could explain
Any feeling

Lower me down
Pin me in
Secure the grounds
For the lead
And the dregs of my bed
I’ve been sleepin’
For the later parade



Bonus Y Luego si encima ves a Chan Marshall en directo comprendes, aún más, el porqué de su atractivo.

Mejores Canciones Internacionales 2014

Seasons (Waiting On You) me enganchó a la primera escucha, mejor dicho a la primera visualización, sí, el poder de la música unida a las imagenes obró el milagro. La actuación de Future Islands en el show de David Letterman, mejor dicho la interpretaciónón de Sam Herring su líder, es de las que no olvidas, u odias la canción o la amas. Para mí, la mejor canción de 2014. Y eso que hay muchas muy, pero que muy buenas.
