there's little doubt that marnie stern lives up to her reputation as 'the lady who shreds,' but for marnie, shredding is not enough. after putting out three critically-acclaimed albums, marnie could have gotten away with putting out another album filled with her richly layered sound, singular frenetic finger tapping and almost philosophical lyrics. however, as anyone who has given her last few albums a good listen can tell, marnie is not one to stand still. instead she attacks her musical evolution with full frontal bravado, revelling in musical risk instead of relaxing in the comforts of the known. her new album, 'the chronicles of marnia', finds marnie not only working with a new drummer (oneida's kid millions), but also passionately subtracting from her normally dense song structures to craft a sound that is both familiar and wholly original.
