Next time you’re tempted by the jingle in your pocket to flood your local with the sound of eighties hair bands, you might want to consider hanging on to your quareters and letting Chan Marshall punch up a few songs instead. After all…a gal who has lived in bars should certainly know her way ‘round a Jukebox. Proving it, Cat Power will follow-up the 2000 Covers album with another batch of some of her favorite songs. Backed by the inseparable Dirty Delta Blues Band, Jukebox (Matador) elegantly waltzes through a series of tracks by Frank Sinatra, Hank Williams, Bob Dylan, and Billie Holiday (among others), unearths a lost relic (“Metal Heart” – which first appeared on her Moon Pix album), and offers up a new track from Chan (“Song To Bobby”).
