Speedy Ortiz, known for their lyrical density and strong guitar presence, keeps their reputation alive with the release of "Raising the Skate," the first single from their second album, Foil Deer, out April 21st.  For this album, they focused on keeping their tracks more light-hearted and free, unlike previous songs that often had darker undertones.
