Cat Power hasn’t released a new album since 2012’s Sun, hasn’t posted on her Facebook page in more than a year, and her official website is bare except for video links and a trio of shows listed on the tour page. But the singer also known as Chan Marshall has always moved at her own pace, taking the time to mull over her feelings and let them sink in fully before transforming them into music with her rich, distinctively languorous voice. Her songs feel more like emotionally cathartic incantations rather than simple pop tunes, although she breaks free from the stark folk balladry of her early records into a more uptempo, funky and rocking mix on Sun, ranging from the title track’s swirling electronica to “Nothin’ but Time,” a hypnotizing, 10-minute-plus duet with a low-crooning Iggy Pop.
