Torche – “Exit Flagger” (Guided By Voices Cover)

Underground metal is generally a willfully insular world, but anthemic Florida stompers Torche don’t care about any of that. Their surging stomp is as much Superchunk as it is Slayer, and they cover three songs from indie-nation heroes Guided By Voices on a new split EP with Part Chimp. Right now, one of those covers, Torche’s faithful take on the Propeller track “Exit Flagger,” is streaming at Pitchfork.

Torche also cover “Postal Blowfish” and “Unleashed! The Largehearted Boy” on that EP, which is out 11/5 on Chunklet Industries.
