A mellow but moving song by Speedy Ortiz off their recent release Foil Deer off of the local Carpark Records. “The Graduates” laments past glories and struggles in school that launches into a killer chorus with the lines “I was the best at being second place/ but now I’m just the runner-up”. It’s irresistible in a sad and sentimental way.
