Speedy Ortiz
Speedy Ortiz
On their debut full-length, Western Massachusetts' Speedy Ortiz manages a bit of magic by conjuring the spirits of classic American indie rock, while twisting those ghosts into new shapes. It's easy to hear the influences of Helium, Jawbox, and Chavez on this album, as well as nods to contemporaries Grass is Green, Pile, and Roomrunner. Sweet vocal harmonies run up against gnarly distortion, aided by basic, chunky bass parts and heavy, fill-laden drums. The album was recorded in a few days in November at Justin Pizzoferrato's (Dinosaur Jr., Chelsea Light Moving) studio, Sonelab.
The Dead Girls
The Dead Girls
The Dead Girls (formerly Dead Girls Ruin Everything) is the white-hot super group formed from the molten ashes of Ultimate Fakebook and Podstar, bands that were once staples of the Lawrence and Kansas City power-pop sound. Guitarists/singers Longbottom and Hawk, of Podstar, combine dual-guitar driven attack and blissful vocal harmonies with the precise rhythmic assault of drummer Melin and bassist Colby, of UFB, creating an infectious rock sound.
