Watch Parquet Courts Knock Out “Berlin Got Blurry” On Conan

We’re nearing the release of Human Performance, the new album from Parquet Courts, the young kings of sardonic New York postpunk. Last night, the pre-release rounds took the band to Conan, where they performed the chugging single “Berlin Got Blurry,” which seemed to sincerely impress the show’s host. The band had a casual, practiced ease; they continue to come off like it’s not a remotely big deal for them to be this good at making indie rock. Watch the performance below.

And when they were in Los Angeles, the band took a studio tour and visited the set for the Friends hangout Central Perk:
