As a celebration of DoNYC’s One Year Anniversary, they put together a solid night of music at Baby’s All Right this past Tuesday. The show featured a rock solid triple bill of Marnie Stern, Torres, and Porches.
Marnie Stern has released a new track for the Adult Swim Singles Series called “That Was It.” It’s a very Marnie Stern track featuring her soft vocals and eccentric guitar playing that has become her trademark. No one else does it quite like her.
Check it out below.
[mp3]: Marnie Stern – That Was It
Marnie Stern may be an artist that you either can or can’t get into. But no one can argue that she and her band aren’t a talented group. Her style of music isn’t for everyone. With that said, her live show does a good job of bringing her music to life, while also showing off her undeniable talent as a guitarist. She’s always fun to watch live, as you can always expect something funny and entertaining to come out of her mouth at some point during her set.

Marnie Stern’s music is not easy to describe. It’s a very unusual style. Her style of singing does match the nature of her tap-guitar playing and stop-pause rhythms. She is a lot of fun to watch because of this, and antics such pressuring her drummer to bear down to his boxers. Don’t think you will find any other female guitarist like her, and that makes a Marnie Stern show always worth a watch.
The Chronicles of Marnia’s first single “Year Of The Glad” is already available to listen. It’s a guitar jam with a unique range and temperature. Sounds like she spent some time hanging/listening to Deerhoof. But with that said, it’s also very Marnie Stern.
Take a listen below.
Caught Marnie Stern for the 2nd time during CMJ week at Brooklyn Bowl for Pitchfork’s #Offline. She sounded even better than she did at Stereogun’s Showcase, benefiting from a better sound system. I enjoyed it a lot more. She has some heavy riffs for a small blond girl.

Marnie Stern impressed me with a set full of quirk guitar rock. This girl knows how to rock. It was the first of two shows I caught from her this week. Gotta get around to listening to her new album already.
I was browsing twitter before and noticed a convo between two of my favorite bloggers, Knox Road & We Listen For You. They both agreed that the new Marnie Stern song, “Transparency Is the New Mystery”, is fantastic, and I got to hand it to them, it is. This lady penned quite a mean guitar riff. The song gets more and more addicting as you keep in on repeat. You should try it out.
It’s off her self-titled album that will come out on October 5th via Kill Rock Stars.
It looks like she has also added some new North American tour dates. Check those out after the jump via Pitchfork:
