Adult Swim’s free summer singles series continues with a fat-free track from Speedy Ortiz. Essentially the polar opposite of last week’s bummer town entry from Fatima Al Qadiri, “Bigger Party” sounds nothing like its Tri Angle-esque cover art. It’s more of a straightforward indie rock jam, featuring a golf clap-worthy chorus (“I’m sorry for the time that I made out with all your friends/ I’m really a shit head”) and dollops of feedback that enhance rather than overwhelm its two-minute running time. Hopefully the recent hiatus decision of guitarist Matt Robidoux doesn’t get in the way of more shred-a-thons like this.
