I hope there is such a thing as a Marnie Stern wall-poster, and I hope that many of them are hanging on the bedroom doors of rock-aspiring young women everywhere. This chick is completely kick ass. Her new album “This Is It And I Am It And You Are It And So Is That And He Is It And She Is It And It Is It And That Is That” is one of the strongest records of the year. Stern’s Deerhoof-ish guitar leads the way in this uncompromising album, but her voice–more rhythm than melody–and the spasmodic drums push this album to the top. Comparisons are not easy to come by–Deerhoof is one, and there are Pixies-ish moments, but Stern is really doing her own thing. And I fucking love it.
