New York's Marnie Stern ranked No. 87 on Spin magazine's controversial list of the greatest guitarists of all time. While that might have raised some eyebrows in non-hipster circles or with people living outside NYC, it showed that some folks are taking notice of Stern's competitive talents. The departure of drummer Zach Hill (Hella, Boredoms, Death Grips) left an opening for Oneida's Kid Millions to work behind the kit in sync with Stern's kamikaze style, which is heightened by vocals that are high, manic, and twee. "Immortals" keeps the fretboard a-tappin' to dizzying effect, but the title track is both catchy and crazy and jammed with enough energy to wear out an opposing army. Songcraft is moved up in priority here, and the moodiness of "East Side Glory" shows Stern expanding her palette to include subtler shades without losing her intensity. "Proof of Life" further peeks at Stern's autobiography, giving a (guitar) shred of human compassion to her otherwise freestyling flights of fancy.
