Speedy Ortiz - Major Arcana

I hadn't heard a really impressive BNM in a while, but here we fucking go.

If you like Pavement, early Dismemberment Plan, Liz Phair, Modest Mouse and Sleater Kinney, get on the bandwagon and ride.

Speedy Ortiz "No Below" / Out Of Town Films - YouTube

This shit is tops. Really love the lyrics, vocal delivery, guitars, sloppiness, etc. etc. Everything really does come back around after 20 years or so, huh. What up, '93.

I grabbed this from iTunes a few days ago. I've only listened once, but I agree with the 90's vibe. No Below jumped out at me as the standout track on the first pass. I need to give it a couple more spins.

Laz should probably get on this, stat, if I understand his music taste at all.

Hopefully the Modest Mouse influence is the weakest out of those listed.

Because the rest is up my alley, indeed.

Nice timing, El Mel.

That's about the worst thing that can happen to a person....well, from a musical standpoint.

That blows. I am legitimately sorry about that. It would have looked a bit pathetic had I listened to the album the moment it got BNM'd, you know?

If it were a thing, I wouldn't be doing it.

This band rules. Let's talk about how their debut single was called "Taylor Swift" and it kicks ass.

I've not hear that one. I will have to check out the EP. Looks like it's streaming on Bandcamp.

Yeah, it is. Here:

Taylor Swift b/w Swim Fan | Speedy Ortiz

It was a standalone single, though. Not even on the EP.

K, that's dope. Doesn't sound much like Taylor though

Cuz I got a boy in a hardcore band
I got a boy that likes to fuck to Can
Then there's the boy that sings those sad songs I like
I've got too many boyfriends to see you tonight
