“Tracked in my mom’s kitchen from 10 pm – 5 am, overdubs and mixing with our touring sound engineer Danielle DePalma at Seaside Lounge. Sad13’s live drummer Zoë Brecher appears on a recording for the first time. Chad Clark of Beauty Pill/Smart Went Crazy mastered the song.”

Head over to Stereogum & hear Sad13’s cover of Carole King’s “It’s Too Late”!
The track is part of the first volume of GRLMIC, a new foundation that “aims to support and empower a diverse spectrum of young women/non-binary youth through music.” All proceeds of their covers compilation will go to Planned Parenthood and the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls.
“Sadie Dupuis uses the same sparkling synths that marked the Speedy Ortiz leader’s solo debut Slugger to pull the ’70s song into a more modern frame of reference while still retaining its charms.”

The following will be performing live music for those in attendance: Sad13, the solo pop project of Speedy Oritz’s Sadie Dupuis. Palm; the angular experimental pop band from Philly; wistful dream pop from the bay area’s Madeline Kenney; Brooklyn indie pop from Emily Reo; pulverizing thrashy guitars from Chicago’s Melkbelly; and Baltimore lo-fi dream pop band, Snail Mail. BYOE.

Watch Sad13’s new video for “Get A Yes” via Pitchfork. Your new step-by-step guide to consent. Directed by Isabel Farrington.
Sadie Dupuis on the video: “I wanted to make a tribute to ’90s-style group dance videos, and my childhood friend Patsy Gay, who spends her days as a dance archivist, put together a sample reel of choreography using moves from Spice Girls, Aaliyah, Salt-N-Pepa, Janet Jackson, and Jordan Knight vids… plus Stephanie Tanner and Urkel. Isabel Farrington, who directed the video, styled it as a late-night TV infomercial about teaching the dos and don’ts of getting consent to dance with your partner. We filled the video with tons of our friends and shot it over a couple days at Silent Barn.”
Only a few dates left on Sad13’s first North American tour. Catch her in a city near you!
