Sometimes I go a week or something without listening to Cat Power, then I listen to her and am like ‘why don’t I just listen to her all the time???’. I just love her voice. This is my favourite of her newer recordings, along with Lost Someone from Jukebox. Her voice is just so jaw droppingly brilliant, I remember I had to sit down the first time I heard this (well, I was going to sit down anyway, but still!). That opening line, it’s just fantastic. You can watch a great half an hour set of Chan performing at KCRW here (Dark End Of The Street is the second song in, followed by Lost Someone). You can hear Dark End Of The Street on the EP of the same name that came out last year.
