Kill Rock Stars
Marnie Stern makes guitar rock for people who don’t know anything about guitars and who don’t like rock music. I can’t really think of anything about her that doesn’t peel the skin …

It’s a new year, so that means new content for Each Note Secure. Every couple weeks or so, I’ll be reviewing a handful of new records. These reviews will be less about whether or not an album is objectively “good” and more about whether it’s cool and/or interesting and/or worth …
