For his entry in the 2014 installment of Adult Swim’s Singles Program, Auto-Tune impressario Future upped the anty by pairing the silky “Coupe” with a cartoon video ripped from Adult Swim’s own nightly programming block. So, just how could any other band/artist hope to match trap music, sweet luxury cars, and Ultraman cameos? How about with four blistering guitars.
That’s right, this week’s Singles release features the stylings of Nashville’s own Diarrhea Planet, who unveil a brand new song entitled “Spooners”. Here, the six-piece shift slightly away from the quirky pop punk sheen of last year’s I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams. Instead, the focus becomes about generating an even more physically-jarring wall of noise, which they accomplish with four-to-the-floor riffs, anthemic vocals that leave them practically hoarse, and heaps of feedback. It’s sort of like running head-long into a mosh pit, if the other attendees were all NFL linebackers.
