Fucked Up has a remarkable knack for inciting indie-rock types to care about hardcore, probably because the Toronto outfit brings an operatic complexity to an often monochrome genre. The band returns to town behind this summer's Glass Boys LP. Speedy Ortiz sets the singsongy vocals of Sadie Dupuis against a field of gnarled, roaring guitars, coming off like the Breeders gone math rock. D.C. crew Give evokes '80s-era hardcore.
