We’re premptively awarding 2013’s best album title award to Marnie Stern, who is calling her fourth record The Chronicles of Marnia. You can hear the fantastic first single “Year of the Glad” now – it’s as weirdly catchy as her best work, with layered vocal effects, unreal guitar shredding, and insane drums (here from Oneida’s Kid Millions – Marnie’s old drummer, Zach Hill, now plays in Death Grips) woven together into uneasy but strangely beautiful patterns. Chronicles drops March 19; check this out in the meantime.
Marnie Stern announces ‘The Chronicles of Marnia’
Raekwon, Killer Mike, Pusha T, Danny Brown, YG, Action Bronson, Young Thug, and more show up.
He also makes a quick cameo as a detective.
“Bubs” is a collaboration with PC Music’s A.G. Cook.
Another new track to follow up last week’s “A Kick To The Face.”
Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
From his still-unannounced new album, featuring Thundercat, Bilal and production from Astronote.
With help from Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij and an amazing piano.
