User Album Review
Ultimately Speedy Ortiz’s ingenuity relates not to innovation but something altogether more sacred to this genre, namely the expression of knotty emotions in alluring terms, at once esoteric and specific-seeming. While Dupuis leaves telling space between what’s said and what’s felt, her own outsider universe never excludes the listener. It’s packed with difficult sentiments that have been brewing unspoken just long enough to acquire some inexplicable potency, steeped in the poetry of repression.
We’re tipped off to Dupuis’s capability on ‘No Below’, the most lucid and brilliant of Major Arcana’s consistently high-quality cuts. In another Elliott Smith-studied quirk of technique, it flips a loner-finds-lungs chorus with revealing modifiers: “(Yes I once said) / I was better of just being dead / Better off just being dead... / But I didn’t know you yet”. From such nigglingly touching moments surface nigglingly great songwriters, and despite the glum facade, Speedy Ortiz are way too euphoric and glorious to suffer for their artfulness. Stripping away the frills, at heart Major Arcana is a mournful treasure that asks to be celebrated.
