The prolific psych-rocker's new album is all wicked come-ons, guitars in street fights and depraved children wanting more. It is full-on Zen hedonism.
From Led Zeppelin to R.E.M. to Broncho, a good song of the summer evokes both a sense of anticipation and a nostalgia for the recent past.
With its wit and melancholy, Speedy Ortiz’s new album is the sound of a woman stomping the sad feelings and then wearing them like a badge of honor.
