Description

El Rocko & Graveface is proud to present... Speedy Ortiz + Acid Dad. A GOOD BILL JUST GOT BETTER.

“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.

“You need to employ a self-preservational sense of humor to speak truth in an increasingly baffling world,” says Dupuis. “I call it a ‘twerp verse’ when a musician guests on a track and says something totally outlandish - like a Lil Wayne verse - but it becomes the most crucial part. This record is our own twerp verse, for those instances when you desperately need to stand up and show your teeth.”

Consequence of Sound writes, "The band’s taste in influences, which adds unexpected dimensions to their tried-and-true guitar rock template. You’ll find shades of Ian Brown’s weird affectless joy on standout single “2ci”, stabs of Tom Verlaine’s guitar on the bruised “Marine”, and a sick, sludge-y bassline straight out of early-’90s Seattle on the chugging “Mistress”. Opener “Die Hard” is also a must-listen; after lulling you into a false sense of security with an intro borrowed straight from Real Estate’s least-threatening B-side, the song explodes into a tight rock jam whose earworm chorus (“Mess with us/ and you’ll die hard”) could get you arrested at an airport."

A true Monday night ripper.
