Last year, the Boston band Speedy Ortiz debuted with Major Arcana, an album that boasted some pointedly precise lyrics and a beautifully honed jagged ’90s-indie sensibility. It’s one of those albums that absolutely should’ve been Album Of The Week but wasn’t. (I gave it to Daughn Gibson, which was, in retrospect, dumb.) They’re already following it up with a new four-song EP called Real Hair, and it shows that they did not use up all their good songs on that first album. We’ve already posted the EP tracks “Everything’s Bigger” and “American Horror,” and now you can stream the full EP at Pitchfork.
Real Hair is out 2/11 via Carpark.
