listen to a new song from speedy ortiz

massachusetts quartet speedy ortiz are gearing up for the release of their sophomore album, foil deer, out april 21st via carpark records.  the follow-up to 2013’s major arcana was recorded at a more leisurely pace, allowing for more cohesive compositions like lead single “raising the skate.”  sadie dupuis asserts that she’s “the boss, caller of the shots” over a winding, monolithic guitar riff that occasionally stutters into a brief flurry of triplets, crafting one of the strongest lead singles of the year thus far.  take a listen to “raising the skate” below.
