Photos: SXSW 2015

SXSW 2015 has come and gone. As Scott noted over the weekend, it was an altogether less corporate, less celebrity-infused, less insane experience than in recent years, though of course it was still at least a little corporate and celebrity-infused and insane. (We never did make it to the McDonald's showcase, damn.) A… More »

New Orleans' Caddywhompus kicked… More »

Watch Hannibal Buress Play Drums For Speedy Ortiz At SXSW

Presumably for the hell of it, the great stand-up comic and Broad City star Hannibal Buress, currently enjoying the festivities at SXSW, said on Twitter that he'd like to drum for a band. He was careful to note that he does not actually play drums. Speedy Ortiz frontwoman Sadie Dupuis took him up on the… More »

Speedy Ortiz – “The Graduates”

The needle-sharp Massachusetts DIY kinda-punks Speedy Ortiz have a new album called Foil Deer coming out next month, and there's a decent chance that first single "Raising The Skate" was the catchiest, most immediate thing that band has ever done. That song was no fluke. "The Graduates," the second of the album's song… More »

R.E.M., Neutral Milk Hotel, Britt Daniel, Kathleen Hanna & More Endorse Net Neutrality In Open Letter To FCC

In two days, the Federal Communications Commission is scheduled to vote on a number of sweeping internet regulations, which will regulate internet service providers as public utilities. They'll also set standards on connection speed and pricing, and they'll generally prevent internet users from being at the mercy of internet service providers. The measures are expected… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

Yesterday, we woke up with a new broody Drake short film to watch with breakfast, and by bedtime, we had a new broody Drake mixtape to listen to over sleepy tea. If those 17 songs had dropped Wednesday instead, we'd likely be talking about one of them below. But we'll get… More »

Speedy Ortiz – “Raising The Skate”

Speedy Ortiz released their hook-heavy EP Real Hair last year, which didn't necessarily mark any sort of departure for the Boston-based band but was an immediately gratifying, simpler first listen compared to their debut full-length. 2013's Major Arcana is an unorthodox record. Intricate instrumentation echoes lead singer and guitarist Sadie Dupuis' hyper-intellectual word choice,… More »

Speedy Ortiz Announce New Album Foil Deer

Speedy Ortiz have announced the follow-up to 2013 debut Major Arcana. It's called Foil Deer, and it's out this April. In an interview with Spin, Sadie Dupuis said the title "comes from a sculpture I saw in a museum a while ago. I wrote it in a notebook. I liked the image of it, and… More »

Speedy Ortiz – “Doomsday”

The latest Speedy Ortiz song comes to us via Brooklyn art collective Famous Class, whose monthly LAMC single series solicits an unreleased song from a musician for a 7" single and asks that musician to curate the B-side. It's a charitable endeavor, with 100 percent of digital proceeds going to the Ariel Panero Memorial… More »

It's just about the end of festival season, but Portland gave us one more this past weekend: Project Pabst, the Milwaukee beer company's music festival.

Speedy Ortiz – “Lost Something In The Hills” (Sibylle Baier Cover)

Sibylle Baier is a little-known German folk singer who, according to this, recorded a handful of songs in her home on a reel-to-reel tape recorder in the '70s but never released any of them. That is, until her son put together a CD of her old songs to give out to family and friend… More »

Speedy Ortiz – “American Horror” Video

Speedy Ortiz released their Real Hair EP earlier this year, and it included "American Horror," one of the band's very best songs to date. Now they've given that song a charming video, directed by Peter Binswanger, which riffs on some horror-movie and video-game references, but with a pretty silly and good-natured attitude. It's le… More »

This past weekend, 4Knots Festival 2014 took place in its usual location at the South Street Seaport in NYC. It's a great festival for a few reasons: The location is incredible; admission is free; it's only one day so there's not much of a time commitment; and it always manages to cram in a to… More »

Speedy Ortiz – “Bigger Party”

Thus far this summer, most of the songs in the Adult Swim Singles Series have been big, ominous, carefully sculpted things. These are not things you could say about "Bigger Party," Speedy Ortiz's contribution to the series. Instead, it's a freewheeling, chaotic, oversharing splurge of a song, with a chorus that you are not likely… More »
