NEW ARTIST ALERT: Marnie Stern.

Marnie Stern.
American songwriter and guitarist from New York.

Marnie Stern
Stern has garnered much acclaim for her technical skill and finger-tapping style of guitar play. Her second album This Is It and I Am It and Your Are It and So Is That and He Is It and She Is It and It Is It and That Is That has garnered the title of “Best New Music” as well as #44 on “The 50 Best Albums of 2008” from Pitchfork.

With such acclaim, you’d think she’d have developed a cult following. (Especially with such a long and tangled album name.) Alas, it is untrue. She’s what would happen if Miley Cyrus were a badass — but with talent. It’s important to remember that she is playing the guitar herself, as opposed to merely singing along. There’s an alternative quality to her music, making it something you’d more likely hear during an independent movie’s “girl power” scene than on the radio. Throw something at the wall and wear the eyeliner of your teens, because finally there’s someone qualified to lead the disingenued youth (or at least those of us still young at heart).
*Note: please don’t let the Miley Cyrus reference scare you away.*
