An addendum to 2015’s critically acclaimed Foil Deer, Speedy Ortiz is thrilled to release the Foiled Again EP today! This digital-only four track collection features two outtakes from the Foil Deer sessions, “Death Note” which was unleashed via Sirius XMU and “Emma O” which debuted with Zane Lowe’s World First. It also includes two remixes of Foil Deer’s “Puffer” — one version featuring rapper Lizzo with edits by Doomtree Collective member Lazerbeak and another by hip-hop artist Open Mike Eagle.

Never ones to shy away from a relentless touring schedule, Speedy recently wrapped up a run with Philly rockers Hop Along and have kicked off a co-headlining tour with The Good Life and others, finally landing at Forecastle Festival on July 16 and 17.

“Although “Death Note” was cut from the quartet’s sophomore record Foil Deer, its alert vocals, rolling guitars, and skidding distortion would have fit in perfectly between “Raising the Skate” or “Puffer.”

Pitchfork

“[Emma O] is stupid awesome. It’s a medium simmer with exquisitely intertwined guitar lines, textured drums, and Sadie Dupuis’ purely gorgeous vocal wafting nonchalantly above.’

Stereogum

“[Open Mike Eagle] the Chicago hip-hop artist was able to … morph and bend the track into something with more grooves and beats, all while retaining the enchanting quality of the original.

VICE’s Noisey

“Lazerbeak’s reimagining of “Puffer” … coupled with Lizzo’s sway leaning flow and soulful vocal flourishes transform the original from a distortive ode to aggression into a alleyway night club mix, without foregoing the centrality of lead singer Sadie Dupuis’ seductive vocal delivery.”

Earmilk

“Combining jaw-dropping majesty and sonic invention, Open Mike Eagle showcases the band’s inimitable vision and talent fully modernized with a pure adrenaline rush.”

Kick Kick Snare

“One of rock’s most compelling young voices”

– NPR

“Off-kilter, hypercatchy pop-rock”

– Rolling Stone

“effortlessly cool”

– SPIN
