Speedy Ortiz is an indie rock band from Northampton, Massachusetts founded by Sadie Dupuis. In 2011 a full band was created and they have released three EPs and three LPs mostly on Carpark Records.
“Necessary brattiness” is the motto for Speedy Ortiz’s dauntless new collection of songs, Twerp Verse. The follow-up to 2015’s Foil Deer, the band’s latest indie rock missive is prompted by a tidal wave of voices, no longer silent on the hurt they’ve endured from society’s margins. But like many of these truth-tellers, songwriter, guitarist and singer Sadie Dupuis scales the careful line between what she calls being “outrageous and practical” in order to be heard at all.
Warm earth noise pop from Philadelphia.
“There’s a playful innocence to the voice and music of Madison Lucas of Modern Moxie. The indie-pop rock group led by multi-instrumentalist Lucas, a South Carolina-born, now Charlotte resident since 2013, is backed by bassist and husband Harry Kollm with recently acquired guitarist Phil Pucci (Pullover) and Charlie Weeks (original Serfs drummer).
The new single from their forthcoming album Claw Your Way Out (June 7) has a whimsical appeal, evoking the feeling of being in a sunken place derived from the revolving capitalistic world in which we’re consumed. “Restart, spare parts, gotta go back to the top of the slide,” she sings before the song fiercely crescendos to the chorus: “All I know, is only want to rock ‘n’ roll, till I’m a ghost.” – CLTure
