Listen In: Speedy Ortiz
Made You a Playlist

August 6, 2013 | Andy Cush

Listen In” is a weekly feature in which we ask musicians to curate a mixtape-length YouTube playlist of songs they’re currently digging.

The Massachusetts-bred indie rock quartet Speedy Ortiz contributed this week’s playlist, a genre-hopping trip that touches on ’90s rap, ’70s outsider folk, and mellow indie, closing with one of the greatest seven minutes of music ever put to tape, Outkast’s spoken-word funk odyssey “Spottieottiedopaliscous.”

Note that Speedy Ortiz selected Jai Paul’s cover of Jennifer Paige’s “Crush,” which appeared on the since scrubbed-from-the-internet leaked Paul “album.” We’ve included the classic “Jasmine” instead.

Major Arcana, Speedy Ortiz’s charming, raggedy debut full length, is available now from Carpark Records.
