irresistible grunge-pop counterpointing gnarled riffs with Sadie dupuis’ conversational, poetic style and sweet vocal athletics; an essential expansion on the ideas of rilo Kiley and sleater-kinney, to our ears.

this - their 3rd record - is urgent and taut, adding surprising textures like Linn drums and whirled guitar processing to their off-kilter hooks. Dupuis, whose electropop solo project Sad13 debuted in 2016 shortly after her own move to Philadelphia, has become more instinctive in her songwriting—her home-recorded demos mirror ‘Twerp Verse’'s songs in a closer way than any other Speedy record—while her lyrics have become more pointedly witty. Even when Dupuis sings of alienation and political weariness, the pop maelstrom swirling around her provides a defiantly charged, mussed-but-hooky optimism. "Speedy Ortiz no longer sound like they're working through their influences; they simply sound like Speedy Ortiz" 9/10 - pop matters
