*** Cat Power
(Smells Like Records)
Hersh's intimate narratives from the realm of fractured psyches are one precedent for the unsettling spells that Marshall casts. PJ Harvey's 4-Track Demos also comes to mind, especially when Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley and Two Dollar Guitar guitarist Tim Foljahn join Marshall for some skeletal indie blues on "We All Die." But Marshall, who grew up in the South and now lives in NYC, brings her own sense of mystery to an exquisite, off-the-cuff cover of the Hank Williams ballad "I Can't Help It If I'm Still in Love with You," proving that sometimes afterthoughts are the best thoughts of all.
