Cat Power Covers


So basically everyone knows that Chan Marshal (aka Cat Power) can throw down mean covers. She put out a whole album of 'em, in fact. She's amazing. This fall she'll be performing that album, The Covers Record at England's Don't Look Back Festival.

Well here we have two tracks. One is the well-known, oft-covered and oft-hated song "Wonderwall." Marshall strips it down, removes the teen angst that the Gallagher boys screeched about in the original and turns it into a more thoughtful tune. It's along the lines of her cover of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction."

Marshall also took on Tom Waits when she sang his song "Yesterday is Here." She turns it into something that sounds like it could've come straight off Moon Pix. That's the thing about Marshall; these songs aren't other people's songs. As soon as she plays them they become her's in a fashion. She makes them fit to her liking.
Yesterday is Here

This last one was a b-side to her single for "Nude as the News." This is twocovers in one. "Schizophrenia's Weighted Me Down" combines elements of Sonic Youth's "Schizophrenia" and Alexander "Skip" Spence's "Weighted Down (the Prison Song)."
