Cat Power Australian Tour 2013
Description:

After releasing ninth album Sun earlier this year, US songstress Chan Marshall aka Cat Power will return to Australia & NZ for an extensive run of dates in February & March 2013.

In a press release from early 2009 Cat Power suggested her days with Dirty Delta Blues (her illustrious backing band including members of Dirty Three and The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion) maybe drawing to a close. Turns out that was no idle threat… her current touring band includes just one former-DDB member, keyboardist, Gregg Foreman. The remaining members, all women, having been drawn from lengthy auditions.

Sun, the first Cat Power album of all self-penned material in six years, also follows that reinvention with all tracks, bar those on lead single ‘Ruin’ (the sole contribution by Dirty Delta Blues), having been played and produced by Cat Power herself.

“Written, played and produced on her own, this is the rebirth of Cat Power… It’s an inspirational album that’s musically very strong.” – Yen Magazine

“Her most joyful, sonically adventurous album to date, the best record she’s ever made… One of 2012’s biggest surprises and best records: an irresistible collection from an inspired, fearless and curious artist.” – NPR

Visually too, changes are apparent. Gone are the trademark locks, replaced instead by a mohawk. Mad Max style. A statement of intent. While the revised stage show takes on arena-like proportions. This is Cat Power circa 2012.

“Marshall’s grandiose lighting and projections — travel photos, radiant sunlight, a giant gorilla, intermingling with a triangular LED-speckled picture frame — Crazy schemes for indie acts wanting to leave a lasting impression, going quite literally for broke laying everything on the line.” – The Vancouver Sun

“When I moved to New York in 1992, I had a severe breakup and I cut my hair super-duper short. And that’s the (Sun) album cover. At first, I just cut all of the damn length off. Four months ago I had a difficult time, not a midlife crisis, like a midlife awesomeness, and during whatever I was going through, I just kept going shorter and shorter. The “Cherokee” video is kind of apocalyptic. I had a mohawk the summer of seventh grade, but I had never dyed my hair before, so this time I did.” – The Daily Beast

With all that awesomeness in mind, Feel Presents are proud to once again bring Cat Power to Australian and New Zealand shores. Touring at the invitation of Meredith’s Golden Plains Festival and the Perth International Arts Festival, this is Cat Power’s most extensive antipodean tour to date and follows 2010′s sold out national tour.
