A heavier track from Speedy Ortiz from the local Carpark Records. “Puffer” follows the excellent “Raising the Skate,” in anticipation of Speedy Ortiz’ album Deerfoil. The track starts off with a thumping bass and churning guitars that rise into a dark chorus full of expectation and lusty vocals. If it all sounds too harsh, it’s catchy nonetheless.
