Speedy Ortiz

Massachusetts four-piece Speedy Ortiz will release new album Foil Deer on April 21 via Carpark Records.

They previously shared a track called “Raising The Skate” and yesterday they followed that up with a 90’s slacker anthem that changes up Speedy Ortiz’s formula a bit, with newly infused synths. Still, this is still very much the same Speedy Ortiz, who weave in and out of their melancholic musings with ease.

This track has become even more personal to lead singer Sadie Dupuis, whose father recently passed away. She posted a personal note on the band’s facebook page, explaining that this song was his favorite out of all the songs that she ever wrote.

You can find the touching note posted below along with a stream of “The Graduates” as well as “Raising The Skates.”
