Marnie Stern – “Believing Is Seeing”

God bless Marnie Stern for making music as weird and abrasive as she wants to. “Believing Is Seeing” — the second single from the math-rock shredder’s first album in 10 years, The Comeback Kid — achieves Deerhoof levels of both oddity and awesomeness. It starts out with piercing guitar and vocals and basically nothing else. “This place is cold!” a multi-tracked Stern yells. “I can’t hear you!” Eventually the song levels out into some bombastic classic rock that gives drummer Jeremy Gara a chance to get his Bonham on, but I gotta respect the gauntlet toss that is the intro.
