Cat Power has faced bankruptcy and the end of a relationship, but fighting her demons and in a declaration of independence her new album Sun is what she terms a ‘rebirth’.

“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

“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
