Transparency is the new mystery, mystery being the secret for success. That’s why Marnie Stern, a goddess of American guitar-heavy “spazz pop” indie, is anything but shy when it comes to criticizing Best Coast’s music for being simple and clichéd. "I heard a song and was like, 'Are you joking me?' That's unacceptable, that's unacceptable. That's not showing any part, that's unacceptable.” Now, that’s transparent. Best of all, her snub comes accompanied by a song with an argument. “Transparency Is The New Mystery” is included on Marnie’s new album, out on 5th October via Kill Rock Stars.
