Speedy Ortiz premiered “Emma O”, the third track from their recently announced Foiled Again EP, with Zane Lowe’s World First Exclusive on Apple Music today.
“’Emma O’ is the name of the Japanese Buddhist overlord of hell who judges souls” says frontwoman Sadie Dupuis. “It’s about spending uncomfortable, quiet hours with someone you still love but shouldn’t. I wrote it at a farmhouse in upstate
New York years ago.”
Foiled Again is a digital-only release. Pre-order a copy of the EP today via Carpark Records and iTunes. The first two singles “Death Note” and “Puffer feat. Lizzo (Lazerbeak Remix)” are also streaming now.
The band heads out on the second leg of their North American tour next week with The Good Life.

TV On The Radio’s Kyp Malone puts his own imaginative, deeply felt spin on Young Magic’s “Default Memory,” offering an extended version of the track. Stream it now via SPIN.
“Malone expands the track to a full eight minutes, filling the abyss with scintillating textures. The multi-instrumentalist takes his time playing with distance and echoes, inspiring shivers throughout.”

Acute Records is excited to present our latest and final release, the “lost” third album by The Lines, hull down. After the release of their cult-classic singles, EPs, and LPs (compiled on Acute’s Memory Span and Flood Bank releases), The Lines continued to record, first in a series of home experiments and then in William Orbit’s Guerilla Studios. Unfortunately, these recordings were never finalized as band members began to drift apart. You can order your copy of the record today on the Carpark shop or iTunes. Thanks for listening!
1. Flat Feet
2. Single Engine Duster
3. Nicky Boy’s Groove
4. Zoko AM3
5. Where In The World
“Some find The Lines tapping into embryonic ‘80s pop currents, notably the sleek New Order-ish disco-rocker ‘Single Engine Duster.’ But the more interesting pieces stand outside genre or era, like the crepuscular sci-fi lullaby ‘Archway’, with its tumbling chimes and luxuriant Eno-esque otherness…” – Uncut

Speedy Ortiz shared the second single from their forthcoming EP Foiled Again. The track is the first of two remixes of their previously released “Puffer” which features Lizzo & Doomtree’s Lazerbeak. Stream it now via Earmilk.
Sadie Dupuis on the track: “I was really into the album Lizzobangers, so we hit up Lizzo and Lazerbeak about collaborating in some way, even though we hadn’t met IRL. After this remix was in the works, Speedy toured with Doomtree (who taught Mike [Speedy’s drummer] how to shotgun a beer), and Lizzo and I wrote and recorded the song ‘Basement Queens’ together in December. So in a way this remix was the catalyst for that tour as well as the song.”
Foiled Again is out June 3rd. Pre-orders are available now in the Carpark shop and iTunes.
