The forthcoming new album from Speedy Ortiz, Foil Deer, is one of my most anticipated for the year, and both 'Raising the Skate' and new song 'The Graduates' are a pretty strong example as to why. It's sort of-punk, sort of-pop, and sort of-shoegaze courtesy of that flourish of synths that rears its head every so often in the background as Sadie Depuis reminisces on high school and college days. Foil Deer is out on 21 April via Carpark Records, and you can listen to 'The Graduates' below.
