Marnie Stern, Live on KVRX, 3-15-2007
Marnie Stern was a darling of both critics and mp3 blogs for an instant earlier this year, and then...and then there was other stuff, I suppose. Amazing how much is forgotten from March to November in the blogosphere, or from March to April, for that matter. A moment come and gone, like a world class shredder's semiquaver hammer-on.
Allow me to redirect your infinitesimal attention span to Stern, whose performance at the KVRX studio went, I think, largely unnoticed. According to KVRX.org, "Marnie Stern came with an iPod with tracks for everything but guitar and vocal. Zach Hill plays the drums and JR Thompson plays the bass in the tracks." Frenetic, chaotic, dazzling, and unrestrained.
