Marnie Stern’s new single from Chronicles of Marnia, easily the best-titled record of 2013, is called “Nothing is Easy,” which is funny because she makes insane guitar riffage sound really easy. Oneida’s Kid Millions, who plays drums on the new record, is a killer drummer but somewhat less in-your-face than Marnie’s former compatriot Zach Hill, so she has more space to fill in with crazy finger-tapping, layered vocals, and unexpected chords. Those last few moments, when she seems to synthesize all her ideas into a coherent repeated mantra, are stellar. Get ready for your jaw to drop. Catch Marnie at SXSW or on tour with the excellent Baltimore band Roomrunner while you wait for Chronicles to be released on March 19.
