Download “Silver Spring” by Speedy Ortiz (playing Kung Fu Necktie on 1/1)

By

If you were at Space 1026 a few weeks ago to see Thurston Moore & John Moloney (yes, that night) perhaps you caught Massachusetts outfit Speedy Ortiz as well.  The math-y grunge rock band released their Sports EP on Exploding in Sound Records in June and is offering up “Silver Spring” as a free sample.  While Speedy Ortiz has certainly quilted together their own sound with boulder-sized guitar riffs and front-woman Sadie Dupuis’ sweetly aggressive vocals, “Silver Spring” nods heavily and happily in the direction of Thurston Moore (“Queen Bee and Her Pals” comes to mind) and 90s art-rock (that infectious, angular hook).  Speedy Ortiz returns to Philly for a show with Roomrunner and Sore Saints at Kung Fu Necktie on Tuesday, January 1st.  Tickets and information for the 21+ show can be found here.  Below, stream and download “Silver Spring.”
