Boston outfit Speedy Ortiz return with news of a new EP – Foiled Again – out June 3rd via Carpark Records (woo!). Along with the announcement comes a stream of “Death Note” – the bands first new music since 2015’s Foil Deer. “Death Note” feels like a gritty continuation of the kind of ideas expressed on Foil Deer, which makes sense since it’s noted that these new tracks are in fact outtakes from those sessions. Nonetheless, the track features a groove heavy rhythm section coupled with incredibly catchy melodic overtones. Songs also listed on Foiled Again include remixes of the band’s “Puffer” and another new one – “Emma O.”
