What our staff has to say: “My favorite Christian indie rock record. ‘The earth started shaking, and dark spirits were smashing up against every window of my house. I woke up and I had my kitten next to me…and I started praying to God to help me…So I just ran and got my guitar because I was trying to distract myself. I had to turn on the lights and sing to God. I got a tape recorder and recorded the next sixty minutes. And I played these long changes, into six different songs. That’s where I got the record.’ – Cat Power on the composition of Moon Pix” – Cleo
“Getting this record on vinyl completely altered my relationship to it. With a couple scratches and a beat up cover, the LP I bought looked the way it feels to listen to it. Although this one is a new vinyl copy, I still can’t recommend it enough. It’s haunting to put this on, turn off the lights, and be transported to the visceral spiritual experience she had. One of the most raw, important singer-songwriter albums.” – Hannah
120 gram vinyl reissue with download. this is the classic, spooky and off kilter album from cat power. chan adopts a kind of child-visionary persona, delivering an idiosyncratic mixture of surreal, direct, and insinuating lyrics that are enough to rend your heart the more you hear them. her voice is husky yet pure at the same time, and she’s at her best with minimal instrumentation, just stark vocals and a muffled guitar, sounding like the saddest, most hopeful person on earth singing to herself in an empty room. originally released in september 1988 on matador.
