We got the pleasure of checking out Cat Power’s set at 3rd & Lindsley last week as part of a solo tour around the country to support her most recent album, Sun, which made our list of top 10 albums of 2012.Undoubtably, this show was going to be one to remember. 3rd & Lindsley is such an intimate venue, so it made for a wonderful setting for a toned-down, solo show by Chan Marshall (Cat Power’s given name). As we told you last week in the preview, we were chomping at the bit for this show to arrive. Check out our full review below and some awesome photos from the night by Kelsi Alexander.
Fiona Apple self-leaked the first track, “Every Single Night” from her upcoming new record The Idler Wheel due out June 19th on Epic Records. It’s a nice little something to help you order your tickets for her Ryman gig on July 13th.
After a 7 year hiatus, Fiona Apple is releasing a new record in June of this year. The Idler Wheel…will be Apple’s first release since her 2005 Extraordinary Machine, which I will admit was on heavy rotation around here in 2006. She’s played a few little shows around recently and that SXSW show for NPR (which she still hasn’t released for us to hear). It appears that things are picking up steam though, and she has announced a North American tour including a date at The Ryman on July 13th. You can check out the rest of the tour here.
