“Lean In When I Suffer” music video

March 21, 2018 12:42 pm

Another new one from Speedy Ortiz! The Fader just shared the “fun” music video for “Lean In When I Suffer.” Don’t be fooled by the clowns though. Video directed and produced by Ari Ratner.

“[‘Lean In When I Suffer’] is about that fun breed of ‘ally’ who wears out their already exhausted friends by relying on us for excessive emotional labor. They want props for their wokeness, but don’t want to put in any actual work or divest themselves of power.” – Sadie Dupuis

The band’s forthcoming record Twerp Verse is available for pre-order on the Carpark shop and across all streaming services. Out April 27th!

Two new Palm remixes!

March 1, 2018 3:08 pm

Two new Palm remixes for your listening pleasure! Via Ada Babar and 食品まつりa.k.aFOODMAN. Give them a listen over at Earmilk.

“Originally available only on the Japanese release of Rock Island, the band is now releasing these tracks everywhere. Foodman’s edit of ‘Dog Milk’ adds glitchy texture and nuance to the original while Ada Babar’s take on ‘Color Code’ immediately pushes you to listen to the original to try and deconstruct how they came up with what you’re hearing. The remixes do a phenomenal job of preserving the spirit of the original record while showcasing the remixer’s particular talents and inspiring you to dig more into their work.”

Both original tracks are taken from the band’s new record, Rock Island, available now on the Carpark shop and on all streaming services.

Speedy Ortiz announces new album, shares single, adds tour dates

February 21, 2018 10:03 am

“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.

We are proud to announce that Speedy Ortiz’s brand new record, Twerp Verse, will be out April 27th, 2018. Check out the slimy music video for the first single “Lucky 88,” via NPR.

Twerp Verse pre-orders are available on the Carpark shop and iTunes. “Lucky 88” is also available on your favorite streaming service.

Bundle your purchase of an LP, CD, Cassette with a Twerp Verse tee or Speedy Ortiz notebook or both! Deluxe LP includes pink vinyl with rainbow splatter and a bonus 7″. Get them while you can!

“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.”

In celebration of the new album, the band will be hitting the road this May. Tickets will be available on Friday, February 23rd at 10am EST.
