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 and Jane Pollard directed the grainy clip at Sugar Hill Supper Club in Bed-Stuy on 7/11. Watch and enjoy below.

Sunbathing Animal is out now on What’s Your Rupture?/Mom + Pop. In other Parquet Courts news, they’ve teamed with Brooklyn band PC Worship to form a supergroup called PCPC. Parquet’s Andrew Savage offers this statement on the alliance:

Like P-Funk, MinuteFlag, Ciccone Youth, Loutallica and Red House Chili Painters (bet you didn’t know about that one), PCPC is what happens when two legendary rock juggernauts join forces. In this instance, members of PC Worship and Parquet Courts have merged into a NY noise-rock confederacy, each band bringing their own sonic distinctions. Spawning from a long history of playing shows together as separate entities, PCPC is born out of an aesthetic solidarity, and will to create something new. Look for them this Fall in select cities throughout USA and Europe.

PCPC have some upcoming dates opening for Thurston Moore. Find those below along with the rest of Parquet Courts’ itinerary.
