Speedy Ortiz at Brooklyn Night Bazaar in February (more by Ebru Yildiz)
Speedy Ortiz

The next single in the Adult Swim Singles series is a new one from Speedy Ortiz, "Bigger Party." It's a good one, with singer Sadie Dupuis' personal storytelling style intact on that chorus of "I'm sorry for the time that I made out with all your friends, I'm really a shithead." Check it out (via AV Club) below.

Speedy will be in NYC this weekend for the free 4Knots Festival on Saturday (7/12) at South Street Seaport with Dinosaur Jr, Mac DeMarco and more.

They also recently announced a tour with Ex Hex which hits NYC on November 1 at Glasslands with Aye Nako and November 2 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for the Glasslands show are on sale now, and tickets for the Merc show go on sale today (7/11) at noon.

Ex Hex recently released a new single from their upcoming Merge debut too. If you missed that, you can stream it, along with the new Speedy song, below...

"I'm sorry for the time that I made out with all your friends, I'm really a shithead."

Yeah, Sacher, that is indeed "a good one". Those are some compelling lyrics.

Are those song lyrics or a text from one 16 year old to another?

They should do a remake of Citizen Kane where his talentless wife is the girl from Speedy Ortiz

is 4Knots really happening? they got 8 bands? that's it? and it's 7 hours on 2 stages?

there's no published schedule anywhere, so you have to assume Dinosaur Jr. and Speedy Ortiz will go on last...but what is supposed to happen during the first 6 hours of this alleged festival?

Did each of the friends know that she'd already made out with the other ones? That's kinda nasty. Were they all in the same room or something?

@1:10 - I thought it was Debbie Gibson!

I do dig Speedy Ortiz though.
