Speedy Ortiz – “Hexxy”

“Hexxy” made its first appearance as the opening track on Speedy Ortiz’s debut release, The Death of Speedy Ortiz. Back then it was called “Hexxy Sadie” (a particularly witty Beatles reference—the lead singer’s name is Sadie) and it was a lo-fi bedroom recording with sloppy and distant drums and poorly recorded vocals. It was awesome back then and it is still awesome, with Justin Pizzoferrato’s (Chelsea Light Moving, Dinosaur Jr.) cleaned-up engineering. The song still has teeth but now they’re sharpened to a point. “Hexxy” is the B-side to their just released 7-inch which also includes “Ka-Prow!”.  Get it while its hot via Inflated Records.
