Foiled Again  EP Out June 3rd Via Carpark Records.

Massachusetts based alt rock quartet Speedy Ortiz have shared a new track from their upcoming EP Foiled Again, due out on June 3rd via Carpark Records. It’s a more restrained spacious effort that showcases singer Sadie Dupuis’ lilt.

“’Emma-O’ is the name of the Japanese Buddhist overlord of hell who judges souls” says Dupuis. “It’s about spending uncomfortable, quiet hours with someone you still love but shouldn’t. I wrote it at a farmhouse in upstate New York years ago.”
