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 Fund at VH1 Save The Music. For the October entry in the series, Speedy submitted “Doomsday,” a brightly sung mid-tempo sway that’s both quirky and dramatically sweeping. It’s a pleasant complement to the aggressive guitar onslaught of this year’s Real Hair EP. Hear it below.

Speedy Ortiz selected Chris Weisman’s featherweight acoustic pop tune “I Took It Off A Record” as the B-side. Here’s that too:
