On gatefold 12” Vinyl or CD  both with pull-out poster, or as a limited edition gold 12” w/ chapbook and sticker. A cleaner, clearer, and almost less angsty sophomore album from Speedy Ortiz. Maybe Sadie Dupuis is all of the above as well. Pushing their sound away from something akin to Silkworm, and maturing with songs that are from a less unhappy place pushing into almost Pixies like territory.

8/10 Robin Staff review, 15 April 2015

Literary punx Speedy Ortiz filtered their troubles through just enough noise on ‘Major Arcana’, with Sadie Dupuis’ retorting to her own downtrodden tales with spitting vocals, jamming feedback and nihilistic guitar licks a la Unwound. People likened it to Pavement, but come on: Speedy Ortiz is not a chill band. They do not slack, they do not snark; they just get up, head to work and destroy.

‘Foil Deer’ amps up Dupuis’ narrative prowess, proving in a victory lap of an album that she’s an airtight songwriter, one can simplify knotty imagery into a ridiculously good soundbyte -- take “The Graduates”, where she describes not smoking a cigarette: “I never put the thing on my lips, just crushed it and spit on where I laid it to rest”. It’s even more impressive when she can reroute her words around a  killer chorus melody: “I was the best at being second place but now I’m just the silvery dread”. Listening to a Speedy Ortiz song is always a surprise: you wonder how these messy stories ever became an earworm.

There are hints of a band gone slightly askew, with ‘Foil Deer’ showing less conventional ways through the punk-flecked indie rock vortex: the spookily whispered “Puffer” has a beat I can imagine Trent Reznor stealing, while “Dot X” is a gorgeously picked tune that plays hide ‘n’ seek with Americana before lashing out with groaning riffs. Ultimately, though, this is the same Speedy Ortiz: morose personal insights and very good guitars. They have been missed.
