Speedy Ortiz’s second proper album—Foil Deer, recorded at Rare Book Room in Brooklyn when the band wasn’t pushing forward on its hectic 2014 tour schedule—comes out on April 21, 2015. The songs represent a leap forward, possessing a lightness that mirrors Dupuis’s post-grad school outlook; they also have a deliberate nature to them, one that emanates from extra studio time and more experimentation with the band’s essential form. (Ferm contributes a few unexpected guitar parts; Falcone’s vocal harmonies zing in with more force.) Speedy Ortiz possesses big-tent rock swagger and punk’s restless yet intimate spirit in a way that makes the impulses seem identical; while the quartet can still command crowds at festivals like Primavera Sound and Pitchfork Music Festival, they also relish playing Boston’s teeming basements alongside the city’s next generation of bands. That willingness to push not just forward, but in all directions, makes Speedy Ortiz one of rock’s most exciting outfits.
Analogue's aesthetic utilizes vocal notions of classic soul mashed against electronic charm, creating soundscapes that are conveyed through a global perspective. Born in Baltimore, MD and raised in central Virginia, Suzi’s geographical background kept her closely connected to the roots of soul, hip-hop, club music, and the emergence of southern hip-hop ; all of which serves as inspiration to her sound and style. Her fascination for self-recordings began at 10 when she began creating her own mixtapes on cassette with dubbed vocals. It was an obsession that seemed to stick. In 2010, Suzi released her breakout recordings NNXTAPE that became
To date Suzi has played live around the world, and created music with some of electronic hip-hop's most exciting names including TOKiMONSTA, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Blu, Stalley and more. TOKiMONSTA and Suzi teamed up to open for Bonobo's "Black Sands" North American fall tour and later dropped "BOOM" on Scion A/V.
Suzi's music can be found in both digital and analogue formats on cassette, vinyl, and online shops.
In 2013, Suzi founded NEVER NORMAL RECORDS, the imprint for her collection of music. Great things are next to come from Suzi.
