Inspired by Fluxtumblr’s post, I want to share: Love this official video for Cat Power’s “Nude as the News.” She’s a lost 60s new wave heroine, right? Godard would’ve dated the heck out of her.
I listened to Cat Power this weekend and did have the awful-feeling thought that man, I liked her music more when she had more…personal troubles? The Greatest is such a boring album, I think. But getting over alcoholism and craziness does, generally, make for less immediately compelling art, if you want to generalize.
(Wrote about that video - and some other great work by the awesome Brett Vapnek - last year for Tribeca.)
