“Explosive” is a term you might want to avoid using when describing a band dubbed Diarrhea Planet, but sometimes you just gotta go with what works. The Nashville garage-scuzz dudes’ new single Babyhead (via Consequence Of Sound) is explosive, but it’s not uncontrolled—there’s even a sing-a-long chorus. Heck, you could do the fucking Twist to this song.
 
Babyhead is a spit-soaked orgy of sound, scratchy vomit-like vocals and guitars that bounce around like musical chairs. It picks up speed rapidly towards the end like a Rocky anthem and builds to a teasing climax. Oh, you guys. The track is off Diarrhea Planet’s upcoming album, I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams, out August 20 via Infinity Cat. Check it out along with the band’s upcoming tour dates, below.
