New Tracks: Speedy Ortiz

     Pretty damn excited about this new-ish band. They combine a bunch of elements that suck me in quickly. I was a child of the 90s and this is exactly what I'd listen to incessantly when I was 14. Speedy Ortiz, much like Swearin', are an east coast, female-fronted, post-punk band in the vein of The Breeders, Throwing Muses, Chavez, or even Pavement. Sweet, kinda-angsty vocals, chunky bass, often metallic guitars, manic drums...RAWK! RAWK! RAWK!
     It makes me want to hang out at the flea market, find the outdoor tattoo/piercing booth, eat a bunch of horrible carnival food, and never talk to my parents again. Here're 3(!) new tracks.
