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.

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 – “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 »

Adult Swim Announces 5th Singles Series With Deafheaven, Run The Jewels, Speedy Ortiz, & More

For the last several years Adult Swim has curated a series of singles released throughout the summer. They've put out some fantastic tracks in the past, but for the fifth series, coming this summer, they've completely outdone themselves, enlisting a dizzying array of artists from Speedy Ortiz to Tim Hecker, from Deafheaven to Run The… More »

Sadie Dupuis – “The Last Page” (Emily Haines Cover)

Independent of her work with Speedy Ortiz, Sadie Dupuis is racking up a diverse collection of cover songs. Last year, we heard her cover Ciara's "Ride," and recently she contributed a cover of Josie And The Pussy Cats' "Pretend To Be Nice" to Father/Daughter's cleverly conceived compilation of artists covering songs by fictional bands.

TV Party: Speedy Ortiz Talk Nashville

TV Party is a new Stereogum feature in which Kelly Conaboy, who you might know from our former sister-site Videogum (R.I.P.), will chat with musicians about their favorite TV shows, TV shows they're currently watching, or TV shows they hate.

Pony Bones – “Crystal Key” (Stereogum Premiere)

Later this month Speedy Ortiz guitarist Matt Robidoux will release a new EP from Pony Bones, his warmly lo-fi project with drummer Kate Hanlon. We already heard the first single off PONY BONES II, "Clyfford," which noisily stumbled into melodies with an off-balance charm. On their new single, "Crystal Key," the band has their… More »

Watch Speedy Ortiz Cover Blur’s “Bugman” Acoustic

Knowing your audience is an underrated skill, but it's a skill that Boston DIY punks Speedy Ortiz seem to have down pat. During a recent UK visit, the band sat down to record an acoustic in-studio session for NME, and they had the very good sense to find the Britpop moment that most fit with… More »
