Speedy Ortiz back for more

Speedy Ortiz is centered down in Northampton and I think one her guitar players lives even closer, around Keene, but I had never heard of her (them) until Otis Hart asked me to review her first three recordings. They were pretty great, spiky and lo-fi but super intelligent behind the dissonance. My Dusted piece on Speedy Ortiz ran earlier this year. I think I even mentioned that she had a new album in the can, though I had no idea it was coming so soon. The new one is called Major Arcana, it's out on Carpark and, if the world were in any way fair, it would be a monster.

Check this out, it's like the Breeders in front of Polvo or something...
