"Stern is a genre of one - art-metal math-rock bubblegum pop... There's plenty here for musicians to analyze and dissect with envy, but first and foremost, this is an album for the body and the soul." - Pitchfork
Marnie Stern is a rising star in todays music landscape and boy can she shred. But what makes Stern better than any of the other hundreds of guitar wizards is her uncanny ability to somehow transform the most complicated guitar acrobatics into beautiful and concise pop. Hers is an art suitable for everyone from the harshest critic to your Mum and kid sister.
Coming from the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Marnie admits she didn't listen to "good" music (her words) until she was 23. The first thing she heard that made her head spin was Sleater‐Kinney, followed a few years later by Hella, Boredoms, Melt Banana, etc. A Don Caballero video introduced her to the fingertapping technique she now uses expertly. For the last several years she has played guitar for "at least" three hours a day because she feels guilty when she doesn't play. And it paid off, Marnie is one of the rare artists who was signed to KRS after sending in a demo tape.
Clearly, Marnie Stern's life and music are not easily separated; which is why Marnie Stern the record and Marnie Stern the person have REAL personality. Listen to any of her records and you quickly realise Stern lives in between the lines of chaos and harmony.
