At this point, Marnie Stern is only competing with herself: If her debut, In Advance of the Broken Arm, was good, then follow-up This Is It was better and 2010’s Marnie Stern was best, producing more energy and emotion with rapid-fire fretboard

Man Ever) while remaining as casually devastating as ever.
