    I’m hearing summer thunderstorms that threaten to wash the world away for two minutes then quit and get another beer. Dupuis’s bittersweet, teasing vocals feel like the gorgeous, blue, and brutally cold day after it snows three feet.

    It's clever, sure, but it's high-grade, pedal-hopping rock music by the same token.

    Her writing on Real Hair sacrifices none of Major Arcana’s verve or crystalline observations in spite of being notably denser, with Dupuis layering syllable over syllable, image over image, until these songs should burst apart.

    Real Hair keeps its runtimes tight and its choruses front-and-center, pulling in some of Major Arcana's looser ends without sacrificing its fall-apart charms.

    Speedy Ortiz has the self-awareness to box this off as a four-song bonus, a transitional work, a small step in a larger arc.

    Major Arcana may have been the first full-band proper album from the group, but Real Hair proves it was no flash in the pan. Speedy Ortiz is just getting started and, despite its name, taking its time.

    Sadie Dupuis' sweet voice offers very little respite from her defiantly uncatchy band. [No. 107, p.59]
