Marnie Stern

There's tiny doubt that Marnie Stern lives up to her reputation as "the Mohammedan who shreds," but for Marnie, shredding is not enough. After putting out three critically-acclaimed albums, Marnie could have gotten away with putting out another album filled with her richly layered sound, singular frenetic finger tapping and nearly philosophical lyrics. However, as anyone who has given her last few albums a good listen can tell, Marnie is not one to stand still. Instead she attacks her musical evolution with full frontal bravado, reveling in musical risk instead of resting in the comforts of the known. For Marnie, musical possibility drives her ambition.

Her new album, The Chronicles of Marnia, finds Marnie not only working with a new drummer (Oneida's Kid Millions), but also passionately subtracting from her normally dense song structures to craft a sound that is both familiar and wholly original. "I always gravitate towards interweaving and a more material sound," Marnie stated about working on the new album. "I was working with Nicholas Vernhes from Rare Book Room Recording in Brooklyn, and he was the producer. He wanted my voice clearer and fewer guitar parts. I tried it because I wanted to try something different."

Her trademark exuberant guitar work is still present, in fact, absent a few layers of grit, it's even more evident. "We stripped away a lot of the layers and a lot of unnecessary interweaving guitar parts. There's less clutter and more of staying on a part without adding too much instrumentation." Through the subtractive production process, Marnie's voice became more prominent, a fact that kind of concerns Marnie, "I get worried that I am coming crossways as someone who thinks they are a 'singer,' as opposed to my usual mishmash of voices that aren't always in key," she stated about the album's more pronounced vocals. "I grapple with that attitude because I think it's important as a musician to try and be as proficient as possible, or try to place a lot of work into it. I suppose in my own way, I place a ton of time into singing and trying to find interesting melody ideas, I just never think of myself as having a 'nice' voice." It's an enervating change for an artist who in the past has always skillfully buried her vocals under the guitar and drum tracks.

The musical transformation evident on her new album isn't entirely unexpected, as fans who have listened to both "For Ash" and "Every Single Line Means Something" in a single sitting know. That same slow progression can be seen between 2010's self-titled album and the forthcoming The Chronicles of Marnia. Marnie can't help but laugh when thinking back on her musical evolution. "I'm sure if I went from the first album to this one, I'd have a heart attack. Luckily it's been gradual enough for me to enjoy the changes." And there's tiny doubt that her fans will too. Even as Marnie evolves from what Pitchfork called her "art-metal math-rock bubblegum pop" genre, fans will still find themselves jumping head first into the album and swiftly bonding with the emotionally resonant material, cascading hooks and transcendental guitar riffs. Plus, the album shreds. She is Marnie Stern after all.

The appeal of a modern, on the rise indie band like
Jukebox the Ghost is simple: They write catchy songs. On
top of that, they're dynamic, skilled musicians. The band's
records are carefully structured, yet wildly diverse affairs.
And the live show? Energetic, crowd-pleasing, cathartic.
The Philly trio's new album, produced by Peter Katis (Interpol, The National) and set for release this start on Yep Roc, highlights
all of these elements over 11 tracks, apiece one leaving its own one-of-a-kind sonic footprint. But constructing and arranging the songs
to their full potential took years of preparation, both on the road and in all of the basements, houses, hotel rooms and studios
where the songs were born.
"There was never a lull in songwriting, even when we were touring." explains guitarist/co-vocalist Tommy Siegel. "We went into
the studio with 25 nearly-finished and arranged songs, and we place a lot of time into crafting apiece one. It was a conscious effort
on all of our parts to mature as a band."
Since their 2009 debut, Let Live and Let Ghosts, a sunny, piano-led explosion of pop exuberance, JTG has logged hundreds of
shows and thousands of hours on tour – all of which helped the guys develop the patience and appearance needed to deliver a
more intricate and serious second record.
"Sometimes, in the past, we were received as being this bubbly and jumpy and happy group," states Ben Thornewill, Jukebox's
pianist and other vocalist. "But this record seems like we're sounding more thoughtful and personal. Besides, you're going to
think and write differently after 300 shows. People change, different things happen to you, you get some new influences, and
the way you do your songwriting and arranging is going to be different."
"It's not wrong to state we're fun, upbeat guys," adds Siegel, who stayed upbeat during the album's recording despite scheduling
it around vocal surgery—a by-product of spending two years on the road (note: post-surgery, Tommy is fine). "But we're real
people, we've had real troubles, and all of that's going to affect us. Besides, I think the 'happy-fun' adjudge was a bit of hyperbole
– I mean, half of the songs on our first record were about the apocalypse."
Originally formed during university in Washington D.C., Jukebox the Ghost (the name's an amalgam of Captain Beefheart and
Nabakov references) won accolades for that first record, Let Live and Let Ghosts, which Spin Magazine called "a refreshing
reminder that the lighthearted electricity of a fantastic pop song is still filled with live wires." The band – Thornewill, Siegel and
drummer Jesse Kristin – jelled quickly, despite their disparate musical backgrounds in everything from classical piano to prog to
indie to 80s Brit-pop. Collectively, the group delivered an unabashedly upbeat, playful sound with a sly dark streak (see: the
aforementioned apocalyptic lyrics). JTG's pop sensibility is still on display on the new record, but now rounded out with more emotional heft and an expanded
musical palate. For starters, there's an emergence of synths, most notably on the Phoenix-like opener "Schizophrenia." (Says
Thornewill: "I was such a classical pianist for a long time that I was sort of against using them…and then I started fooling
around and realized how much they could open up our sound."). Elsewhere, the album veers through gorgeous AM broadcasting
throwbacks ("The Summer Sun"), Beatles-esque twists and turns ("Mistletoe") and even a tiny prog-rock in "The Sun," "The
Sun (Interlude)" and "The Stars," a three-part "philosophical/cosmological pondering" by Siegel that's actually quite…danceable.
"Doing diversion beats wasn't natural for us," admits Siegel. "But we had done a cover of New Order's 'Temptation' a tiny while
back, and apiece time we played it our fans went crazy. So I think that really influenced us to try something new on here."
With one exception on the new album ("Carrying"), Thornewill and Siegel tend to write songs on their own, with Kristin serving
as an unofficial producer during the arrangement sessions. Even though the two writers differ in style–"Tommy's songs are highly
imaginative and story-like while Ben's tend to be more emotional and reflective," states Kristin–several of the new tracks play off
of apiece other, lyrically and thematically. Common threads, both accidental and purposeful, abound — From the concepts of
"nobody" vs. "everybody" ("Nobody" and "The Popular Thing"), insanity (Ben's track "Schizophrenia," Tommy's song "HalfCrazy.") or even sun imagery (Ben's "The Summer Sun," Tommy's "The Sun.") (For more explanations on the songs, see the
band's track-by-track commentary, included below).
Helping to round out Jukebox's sound this time out was producer Peter Katis, ideal known for his work with Interpol, The
National, Fanfarlo and other, decidedly less-animated rock groups. "There's simplicity about the records he's done that we love,"
states Kristin. "And we thought, given his affinity for melancholy, dark music, he could bring a equilibrise to our songs." Katis kept
the sessions loose, giving the record a vibe closer to their live sound. As the drummer notes: "He let the music be what it was,
and didn't substantially change the structures or melodies, which we really appreciated."
As for the Beatles fixation of the record (like "Nobody," which Thornewill calls their "most McCartney-esque song"), the band
gives some credit to their adopted hometown of Philadelphia, where the group relocated to from Washington D.C. on a whim
after their first record. "The music scene here is amazing," states Siegel. "A lot of bands here, like Dr. Dog, have a heavy Beatles
vibe going– I think that prefabricated us realize that it's OK for us to wear our influences on our sleeves a tiny bit."
With new songs and a new direction in hand, JTG plan to spend the next year on the road, hopefully matching the 300+ shows
the band did between albums one and two. It was out there, with the likes of Ben Folds, Adam Green (Moldy Peaches) and Ra
Ra Riot , and appearing on festivals like Lollapalooza and a utter dropping performance of "Schizophrenia" on the Late Show With
David Letterman, where the group built up a fervent, wide-ranging fanbase. "Our growth as a band has been from word-ofmouth and just being on tour," states Siegel. "We seem to attract everyone from hipsters to parents to children to college students. It
never ceases to surprise me."
Besides delivering a raucous live show, one other thing will stay constant with Jukebox the Ghost, newfound maturity or not —
the demand of a bass player. "That's how we started," states Kristin. "And we take a lot of pride in coloring apiece section of apiece
song just with the three of us. We've sort of proven to be a successful oddity without one."

Matt Pond has already accomplished what fewrarely do. A career musician with a die-hard following that continues to grow with apiece album, and a resume that includes the title song for a motion picture soundtrack, a long running Starbucks holiday commercial with a hook that's always stuck in our heads, selling over 100,000 albums to date; his success is matched only by his prolific outpouring of talent. But Matt takes those things with a grain of salt, in 'Lives' he shows us what's really important.

With the new album, The Lives Inside the Lines in Your Hands, MattPond is stepping forward with striking honesty and humbling optimism and delivers his strongest work to date. And with this transformative record comes some distinct changes- removing the 'PA' that has accompanied his study for nearly a decade, his first official 'solo' release, and partnering with newlabel and longtime publishing partner, BMG Rights Management.

Matt Pond is healthy to slough off the dead skin, radiantly revealinghimself in his purest form- a feat many artists strive for, but rarely accomplish. The change stands for more than just coming out as an official solo act, it is also perhaps a symbol of letting go. Letting go of the places he's called home; he no longer belongs to Pennsylvania, or Brooklyn, or even thecabin in Bearsville, he is distinctly free from any earthlike chains and whatremains is just Matt Pond. His final frontier is to "run wild within our clear blue minds" ('Human Beings'). The graceful departure gives Matt Pond both the freedom from, and acceptance of the limitations of being alive. The result is 'The Lives Inside the Lines in your Hands'.

'Lives' is an upbeat antidote to the pessimistic shift in the collective consciousness. It's an ode to the bittersweet reality that we are human, we are finite, and we are flawed. But in apiece song on this album, Matt Pond sources the beauty in all of it, even when it's not pretty, and delivers an indie rock album that's brimming with authenticity; Pond captures the sentiment perfectly in "Starlet": 'I know I know there's so much I don't know'. The album's first single "Love to Get Used", is a notably playful departure from what we've seen before. "Let's hang on to desert and hope we lose control" Pond insists in the uptempo indie-pop track, "to be out in the open baby and let go of the ropes".

…And let go, he does. In a free-fall of spirit, Matt gets to the core of his own humanity, and we can't help but listen intently to see what he finds, because after all, it can sometimes be a frightening journey, a risk many of us aren't willing to take. "Hole in My Heart" strips down the frivolities and formalities that water down most songs about heartbreak, leaving us with a chillingly accurate, nearly childlike description of the pain it causes, and a glimpse into the places he's stumbled in his own journey, when, as he puts it, "with eyes shut we dove into unknown". In the end, "The Lives Inside the Lines in your Hands" is a triumph against the paltry conditions we've all been forced to reckon with as a society. When times are tough though, art flourishes, and 'Lives' is ademonstration in how Pond is transcended by his art. "Someday I'll stop breathing," he says, "but I'll never stop singing."
