EDITORS’ NOTES

If the previous albums of Marnie Stern showcase her eccentric guitar genius, then The Chronicles of Marnia thrusts her unconventional songwriting into the spotlight. The set unfolds like a neon-splashed labyrinth, its path winding through deliriously fizzy underground rock (“Year of the Glad”) and ebullient bursts of hyper-melodic art pop (“Still Moving”). Of course, there’s plenty of her trademark finger-tapping—it’s all over the seesawing “East Side Glory”—only this time around, it serves as a compositional counterpoint to her otherworldly chirps and peeps.
