Which is significantly better than winning the Shortbus prize. Regardless Cat Power took home the award, which is given annually to a relatively unknown act that doesn’t sell a lot of copies of their album.
It’s basically just another let’s pat some people on the back kind of award, but hey we love Cat Power and her album The Greatest is the bees knees in our eyes. Perfect for backporch lounging, sunset gazing, bourbon drinking or nighttime sex; it’s versatility knows no boundaries.
With a voice like smoked tupelo honey, Cat Power (Chan Marshall) beat out the likes of Beirut, Band of Horses, Tom Waits, Hot Chip, Regina Spektor, Spank Rock, Joanna Newsome, Girl Talk and Bonnie Prince Billy.
You’d be doing yourself a favor by picking up her album, if you don’t have it already!
