Rolling Stone Original: Exclusive Cat Power Videos

March 6, 2007 1:05 PM ET

Listen to five tracks recorded live in our Seattle studio by indie rock's preeminent chanteuse, Chan Marshall, aka Cat Power. As usual, Cat Power's mini-set included an insightful mix of completely reinterpreted covers (Buddy Holly's "Crying, Waiting, Hoping," which the Beatles also recorded, and Sandy Denny's haunting folk rock ballad "Who Knows Where the Time Goes") in addition to shiver-inducing renditions of Marshall's own brilliant tunes ("Love & Communication," for example). Check out the songs, recorded exclusively for Rolling Stone, here.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
