Speedy Ortiz is a four-person band from Northampton, MA that plays 90s guitar rock, and draws comparisons to Dinosaur Jr., Pavement, Archers of Loaf and others. They released their debut album, Major Arcana, in 2013 to great reviews.
Pitchfork (Best New Music) raves: "Inspired by the whip-smart lyrics and who-gives-a-f- attitude of greats like Pavement and Liz Phair, this band is injecting some personality into indie rock." Read their interview with the band here: http://pitchfork.com/features/rising/9165-speedy-ortiz/
