Parquet Courts Announce Live At Third Man Records LP

After releasing two albums under two slightly different guises last year, Parquet Courts are cranking out yet another record, but this time it's a live LP.

Parkay Quarts – “Pretty Machines” Video

A few months ago, sardonic New York postpunkers Parquet Courts capped off a really, really great 2014 by releasing the quickie album Content Nausea under the name Parkay Quarts. The album, a bit punchier and more casual than the great Sunbathing Animal, is still full of the sort of sidelong hooks and endlessly… More »

Watch Parquet Courts Perform “Bodies Made Of” On Letterman

The holiday season has passed, which means it's time for the late-night shows to get back to their regularly scheduled musical performances. Parquet Courts graced the Late Show With David Letterman stage last night to do their Sunbathing Animal track "Bodies Made Of." It's clear Letterman likes these guys: at the end of the song,… More »

The 50 Best Albums Of 2014

Music is a messy thing. There's too much of it, too many genres, too many ideas, for anyone to make sense out of all of it -- or even to hear all of it. The idea of imposing a narrative on 365 days of music, of making sense of a whole year, is a fool'… More »

The Parquet Courts side project Parkay Quarts released Content Nausea this week, and they performed the title track on the French TV show Le Grand Journal last night.

Stream Parkay Quarts Content Nausea

New York's Parquet Courts have already released one album this year: The hectic, sardonic, generally great Sunbathing Animal. Next week, they'll follow it up with another one. Band members Andrew Savage and Austin Brown recorded most of the new Content Nausea by themselves, without the input of the rest of the band, so they're… More »

Members Of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Parquet Courts, Dismemberment Plan, & More To Join Forces For Brooklyn Rock Lottery 5

I first learned about the music scene roulette known as the Rock Lottery when some industrious creative types in Columbus started throwing their own annual holiday spinoff, the Rock Potluck, about a decade ago. But Rock Lottery, which returns to Brooklyn for the fifth time this December with a star-studded lineup, actually had it… More »

Parquet Courts – “Uncast Shadow Of A Southern Myth”

The New York-via-Texas band Parquet Courts already released one album this year; the great Sunbathing Animal came out only a few months ago. But they've already announced another one, and this time they're using a different name. Last year, the band released their Tally All The Things That You Broke EP under the… More »

Parquet Courts – “This Is Happening Now”

Earlier this year, Brooklyn's Parquet Courts gave us Sunbathing Animal, one of the most potent pieces of wiry cynic-punk in recent memory. They're back now, with another song for the Less Artists More Condos series of benefit split singles. Parquet Courts' contribution is "This Is Happening Now," a song that switches back and forth… More »

Parquet Courts – “Bodies Made Of” Video

Parquet Courts have released another video from their resolutely knotty post-punk party record Sunbathing Animal. The song is a reminder that yes, Parquet Courts actually do sound a lot like Pavement -- come on guys, just accept it. The video, meanwhile, reminds us that seeing Parquet Courts in concert is super fun. Iain Forsyth… More »

Album Of The Week: Parquet Courts Sunbathing Animal

What a great day for punk rock. My real favorite album of the week is Fucked Up's bleary, anxious, grown-up hardcore masterwork Glass Boys, a grand and surging piece of work that I can't write about because they're my friends. (Our own Chris DeVille did well with that album in his Premature Evaluation,… More »

Push/Pull: Sunbathing Animal And The Next Chapter Of Parquet Courts

Within two minutes of sitting down, Andrew Savage leans forward on his elbows and begins to play mock narrator. "So here we are at East Japanese Restaurant in New York City," he deadpans. "In front of us is an array -- an assortment, really -- of sushi. Beautiful on the eyes. Slowly rotating before us. More »

Watch Nardwuar Interview Parquet Courts

It's a major rite of passage for a band to get interviewed by Nardwuar The Human Serviette, and now Parquet Courts have received that honor.

Parquet Courts – “Instant Disassembly”

Sunbathing Animal, the second album from New York punk rock wiseacres Parquet Courts, is a master-class in shaggy, sloppy propulsion and above-it-all lyricism. We've posted the title track and "Black And White," and both of those songs have drive for days. But "Instant Disassembly," the latest song the band has shared, is a… More »
