Cat Power’s rack and ruin

 

Cat Power, “Ruin”

Sun (September 2012)

Plaiting together a heavy piano riff, splutters of bluesy guitar and some punchy drums, Cat Power has created a nice pillowy backing for what is actually a brutal social commentary.

Having travelled the world in her time off, she now cracks the whip at the people at home, singing that they’re ‘Bitching, complaining when some people ain’t got shit to eat’, while the rest of us are just  ‘Sitting on a ruin’.
