Cat Power, Nico Turner

When: Sun., Nov. 10, 9 p.m. 2013

The songs on Cat Power's Sun—her long-delayed and surprisingly inventive ninth album—don't lend themselves to solo shows. Recorded in parts with a lab of electronics and with her longtime rock band, the music relies on icy, modern effects and a sound pool far beyond the elements of classics such as Moon Pix or You Are Free; consider the trunk-filling bass and crisscrossed computer vocals of "Real Life," the snarled guitars and slingshot rhythms of "Silent Machine" or the 11-minute Iggy Pop duet "Nothin' But Time." Questions of whether or not Chan Marshall will erupt on stage notwithstanding, that material is the intriguing prospect of seeing her play alone in 2013: Can she turn the soul rattles of The Greatest and the contemporary sheen of Sun into the up-close, fraught confessionals of her early career, or will she dip back into her decades-old well? —Grayson Haver Currin
