nick thinks… Top 25 of 2008: 18 // 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 (Kill Rock Stars 2008)
(track 3 – Buck and Judy)
Nick: What language is she singing?
I’m not entirely sure, normally it’s english or gobbledygook, she’s japanese…
well yes I was about to say it sounds like japanese, I like it a lot, melodic, interesting, distinctive sound.
now you’ve heard these guys a lot over the last few years so you should be a super-fan by this stage.
well…. no but I do recognize them, they’ve always reminded me of the icelandic lady….bjork.
this has enough imagination and touches and variations to keep me interested, you could get tired of the voice very quickly but the music keeps you coming back.
I don’t like all of it, like some of it, when it gets a little too experimental, it sort of… you know what I mean… the emmmm…… well they’re experiments and nothing but, no satisfactory results.
but everything else is great.
Now on their 8th or 9th album, maybe even 10th, who cares?, and still delivering the really good goods.
I shouldn’t have to tell you who Deerhoof are or why you should own this album. If yr still not convinced you can listen to all of Offend Maggie on their myspace so……… GO!
