Biography

Speedy Ortiz is a 4-piece from Noho, MA. DADGBE thru OCD. SMFH. “Resurrects the floppy-stringed guitar dissonance of old-school Boston bands like Kudgel and Swirlies, or Rob Crow from Pinback’s predecessor Thingy, who forged similar anti-anthems out of the grimiest chords.” - Boston Globe. TL;DR. DTF. 10” EP, ‘Sports,’ out on Exploding in Sound Records. ‘Major Arcana’ out on Carpark Records; ‘Real Hair’ EP followed in February 2014.

    I find it difficult to find a female lead singer who I can consistently listen to. I am really liking this

    Their new song ties back to that major arcana vibe but a different level which is great ! Can't wait to see them live in May.

    A couple of (potentially) helpful links: the death of speedy ortiz has been wiped from their bandcamp page, but FMA still maintains a download: http://freemusicarchive.org/music/speedy_ortiz/ And Sadie's prior band, Quilty, has a bunch of free releases on their Bandcamp: http://quilty.bandcamp.com/ The Quilty stuff is definitely rougher, but not unpleastly so. Start with the Clover/Coriander full length.

    Everyone who doesn't already know what's good should look up pretty much every other band on their label, Exploding in Sound. Best label right now and chances are if you like Speedy, you'll like the other bands too. Their new guitarist plays in Grass Is Green and Pile are a perfect band. Good place to start if you're looking for new similar music [2]

    that free download off the Sports EP is a pretty well written song imo.

    Shouldn't be too long until the next album, Sadie's been tweeting a lot about writing songs

    I don't really enjoy their real hair ep as much as major arcana.
