Given how infrequently I post these days (yeah, sorry about that), it seems unfair to give Northampton’s Speedy Ortiz such a big share of the spotlight, but I’ll be damned if they don’t keep topping themselves.

“No Below,” with starts with DuPuis’s shaky voice and an uncertain guitar, builds to a glorious, frenzied conclusion, and it’s the highlight off their excellent debut Major Arcana. The record is out on July 9, and you need to get it because it’s great.
