Premiere

Sadie Dupuis – “Meat Of Contract” (Speedy Ortiz Demo)

Evergreen is an upcoming benefit compilation whose proceeds will go towards Hour Children, an organization that aims “to help incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women and their children successfully rejoin the community, reunify with their families, and build healthy, independent, and secure lives.” Artists featured on the release include Hand Habits, Sammus, Fraternal Twin, Sitcom, La Neve (the side project of Downtown Boys’ Joey DeFrancesco), and more, including Speedy Ortiz’s Sadie Dupuis. She’s contributed a demo of an unreleased Speedy song called “Meat Of Contract,” and even in the context of this stripped-down rough sketch, you can tell how the wiry and tense intentions of the project differ from her solo work as Sad13. This one dates from 2011, back when Speedy was still a solo project. The band themselves recently finished recording the follow-up to 2015’s Foil Deer in Omaha with Mike Mogis. Listen to the “Meat Of Contract” demo below.
