'Wide Awake' is a beautiful collaboration...
J Mascis

Two inimitable stylists, J Mascis and Cat Power have developed their own, truly distinct voices.

So what happens when you put the two together? Something magical, of course.

J Mascis' new solo album 'Tied To A Star' emerges next month, with a preview arriving online a few moments ago.

'Wide Awake' is buoyed by some blissful folk picking, with the guitarist in a (relatively) sedate mood. The hushed tones are matched by Chan Marshall's backing vocals, a husky, deeply affecting performance which could only come from one artist.

Much more than the sum of its parts, 'Wide Awake' is a true gem. Check it out below.
