Major Arcana

Street: 07.09
Speedy Ortiz = Best Coast + Slow Club
Major Arcana comes across as pretty, ’90s lo-fi grunge, and would be appropriate listening after watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer while wearing a flannel shirt and ripped jeans. One up if you’re in a garage, listening to this on cassette, and feeling like a total loser. The guitar melody on "No Below" caught me, but I can’t say the same for many other songs on the album. The rhythms will you get you swaying, and if you were picked on in your adolescence, you’ll probably relate to the lyrics. –Brinley Froelich
