Speedy Ortiz keeps it coming with the angsty, just barely post-teenage mini anthems that it seems like Major Arcana will be mostly composed of. Sadie Dupuis has a strange knack for making the most contrived and Avril Lavigneian lyrics sound vital and knife-twisting, and “No Below” proves that she’s willing to turn that knife on herself. Dupuis’ vocals follow a hook-ridden guitar line along a sparse and wintered rhythm section. I have no doubt that I’ll be muttering the song’s “better of as being dead” vocal refrain for the next few weeks, though it won’t be as chillingly forthright as when performed by Speedy Ortiz.
