I love pop songs. I also like female-fronted, sludgy power-pop songs that have cowbells in them. I didn’t know I liked them until I heard Speedy Ortiz’s ‘Taylor Swift’, a perfectly formed 2 minite romp that marries piercing feedback with sweet, almost country-like vocals. Its humble in it’s delivery but when you’ve written a song this good you’ve got nothing to prove. Think early ‘Weezer’ or a non-shit ‘Hole’. I’d like to comment on the rest of their music but so far I haven’t been able to stop listening to this song but by the looks of it there’s a new 7″ coming out soon; it better have some cowbell on it.
Do you have a boy in a hardcore band? Comment!
