The Independent Culture

Freshly shorn of partner and flowing locks, Chan Marshall – aka Cat Power – retreated to the studio to record her first album of all-original material since 2006's The Greatest.

But those looking for more smoky-voiced balladeering will be disappointed –Sun is an album of polished electronic pop that mostly struggles to distinguish itself from the current slew of female singers.

For the record, this is Cat Power's ninth album. No lives left?
