speedy-ortiz-2

As discussed, Speedy Ortiz' excellent debut album, Major Arcana, hits stores on July 9 via Carpark Records. You already heard three-tracks from the LP - "Tiger Tank," "No Below," and "Plough" - and the full thing is now available to stream via NPR. We suggest that you take a listen to it, as Major Arcana is one of the more striking releases so far this year.

The Northampton, MA outfit are slated to embarking on a summer U.S. tour later this week. That tour includes a performance at Coach House on July 13, and they'll also be playing an in-store at Saki Records at 4PM that afternoon with The New Diet.
