Albums of 2008: Day 19 – Marnie Stern – This Is It and I Am It and You Are It and So Is That and He Is It and She Is It and It Is It and That Is That

Today’s 2008 album is Marnie Stern‘s magnificent and pronoun- and conjunction-heavy sophomore LP.

I interviewed Marnie, who’s incredibly nice, for Tiny Mix Tapes. We talked about everything from her Lil Mama mashup to our mutual love of Rudy.

My 30-word review of this record had fewer words than the title:

Brain-scramblingly good. Marnie syncs up with Hella drummer Zach Hill for another blurry-fingered barn-scorcher. Math rock complexity that will leave you puzzled post-listen, but with sugary hooks that dig deep.
