Northampton-based Sadie Dupuis’ bedroom-project-turned-band has been up to some big things this past year. An edgy noise-pop quartet dealing in moody musings— buoyed by fuzzed-out guitars and Dupuis’ oft-changing vocals—Speedy Ortiz won New Artist of the Year at the Boston Music Awards and released this killer debut, called out in Pitchfork’s Best New Music roundup. Now they can add this award to their list of accomplishments, because we can’t stop spinning it.
