Against frayed-nerve guitar riffs and rock-salt distortion, Speedy Ortiz’s Sadie Dupuis is fed up and unwilling to keep letting toxic people in her life underestimate her.

In this episode of Record Selection Zack from Superheaven (previously Daylight) took us to Siren Records in Doylestown, PA. We gave him $50 to spend and he talked us through some records he has been into.
