Speedy Ortiz Adult Swim Singles
October 12th, 2018
"DTMFA" was the last song I wrote and recorded for the Sad13 album, but something about it felt yacht rock i.e. better suited for Speedy. So with some synth leads swapped for guitar lines, it was one of the first we worked on as a band for Twerp Verse, and a live staple in 2016. The Poet's Seat is an observation tower in Western Mass, which I was visiting around the time I wrote this. I was also carrying around a tincture that was supposed to help me commune with ghosts. Basically, looking for guidance any place I could find it, because I really needed to DTMFA, the motherfucker being all my stupid baggage. We're happy it has a home with the Adult Swim Singles Series alongside our 2014 entry "Bigger Party," one of the earliest Speedy demos I made which was quite literally about a time I made out with all of the person I liked's friends. Faux pas!!! I'm way older and wiser now and hopefully I've been forgiven!!! Even though I'm never that sorry.
