"Dreams"

Cat Power covers Fleetwood Mac

Photo By Shawn MortensonShawn MortensonSince Sun, Cat Power’s first record of original material in some six years – really does seem to mark a new chapter for her creatively as well as personally, I’m dialing it back – way back – for this week’s track, all the way to 1998.

This Fleetwood Mac cover was recorded as part of a radio session for Radio Munich in November of that year, and it’s pure Moon Pix-vintage Cat Power, all smoky, mysterious, and slightly wounded Chan Marshall vocals subtly improving on the melody while backed by a couple of spidery guitars. It falls into the class of the best Cat Power covers, which are easily mistakable for her own songs – no matter how well-known and well-loved they may be – but with a little effort, the original is audible and intact underneath.

Cat Power is back for her first show back in Toronto in some four and a half years this coming Saturday, October 20, at the Kool Haus. Fleetwood Mac haven’t released a new record since 2003, but confirmed earlier this year that they will be touring in 2013, their first time on the road since 2009’s Unleashed tour.
