The 2014 installment of Adult Swim’s Singles Program has already featured Giorgio Moroder’s disco grooves and earnest elctro-soul courtesy of Machinedrum. Today, Massachussettes indie rockers Speedy Ortiz offer up their contribution to the series with “Bigger Party”.
Fans of 2013’s Major Arcana and this year’s Real Hair EP should instantly fall in love with this frenetic rock jam, a joyfully disheveled barrage of alt-rock rhythms, crunchy power chords, and vocals that tow the line between endearing and sneering. I’d like to be the first person to nominate this track for chorus of the year: “I’m sorry for the time I made out with all your friends/I’m really a shithead”. Bravo, folks.
