New Marnie Stern - "Ruler"

-



Marnie Stern's upcoming album, This That and the other thing joey joe joe shabbadoo* is looking like a real album-of-the-year contender. First, Stern herself debuted a track called "Transformer", which perfectly split the difference between 1984 Van Halen and 1984 Husker Du. Then came the equally fantastic feast of polyrhythms known as "Shea Stadium". Now, there's "Ruler", a song that Stern herself leaked via the iLike application on the Facebook. Unsurprisingly, it is awesome. The song begins with tapping, then goes to standard pop-song verse-chorus-verse before it gets really interesting with a breakdown that really breaks down. Check it out above.

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** is out October 7th.
