Listen to Greatest Champion Alive, the New Project from Former Diarrhea Planet Drummer Casey Weissbuch

Casey Weissbuch is a busy guy. He’s drummed for Diarrhea Planet, Colleen Green, gobbinjr, Mitski, and a slew of other fantastic acts, and curated Infinity Cat’s famed Cassette Series. 

Today, we're excited to debut a track from Casey's new solo project, Greatest Champion Alive, which crystallized during a trying time. The band’s bio reads that Casey, “started Greatest Champion Alive while he was recovering from brain tumor surgery last year.  The project moved around in different wobbly forms until it all made sense while he was touring in Japan, alone in a hotel room. He put the songs together, sent them to some of the best musicians he knew, and came out the other end ready to blast what he’d been working on." He has now decided to loop us in on the fun.

"Same Light," the first single from Greatest Champion Alive, is a funky, pop odyssey that has the potential to become a total earworm, with its punchy keys making way for Casey's gentle voice. The song also has strong basslines that keeps the song afloat on a pillow of cloudy grooves. Casey told AdHoc over email that, “the more warped I could make the keyboard sound, the further behind the beat the hi-hats were, the better it felt when I’d listen back.” Regarding the lyrics, he said, “it’s just about the differences in people but ultimately what ties everyone together in the end. Crazy stuff ya know, lights and things, bing bang bosh.” This song’s warmth and fuzziness will encapsulate you – check it out below.

Greatest Champion Alive opens for Homeshake on 2/13 at Market Hotel.
