Chan Marshall was digging deep for her new rendition of “Metal Heart” for Dave Letterman last night. The song was originally off her Moon Pix album but was recently given new life on her 2008 release Jukebox.
Lots of people are divided over her performance, with some calling it strange and others chalking it up to Chan can do no wrong. I will say that it’s a captivating performance. Odd yes, but I’d rather see her animated and into the performance than being comatose.
Also she looked like a chicken or some sort of gawky animal. She should work on her stage moves. The best part of the performance other than drummer Jim White straight killing it and her incredible backing band in general was the aaaaawkwaaaard extended handshake with Dave to close the show.
