The discussion around guitar goddess Marnie Stern’s eponymous third LP has mostly focused on Stern’s new found tenderness which has manifested itself in both her lyrics and compositions.  The album’s first single, “For Ash”, was a typically frenetic Stern jam, but its lyrics dealt candidly with an ex who had recently committed suicide.  The unexpectedly restrained “Transparency Is The New Mystery” ups the emotional ante and displays Stern at her most relaxed and vulnerable repeating the refrain: “It’s not enough, it’s not enough/I’m not enough, I’m not enough.”

Marnie Stern is out now on Kill Rock Stars.
