Watch Parquet Courts Debut 5 New Songs In Jersey City

Vince McClellan

Parquet Courts season is approaching. Back in June, the NYC indie rockers extraordinaire released a 10-minute edit of a new single called “Plant Life” while teasing a new album called A Sympathy For Life. And Saturday at White Eagle Hall in Jersey City, the band played a bunch of new material at their first show with an audience in almost two years. (In between, they played a livestreamed gig at Brooklyn’s Pioneer Works in December to celebrate their 10th anniversary as a band.)

In Jersey City, the Parquet boys debuted four new songs and played “Plant Life” live for the first time. The show opened with a new one called “Walking At A Downtown Pace,” and in the middle of the set they unveiled three straight previously unreleased titles: “Just Shadows,” “Black Widow Spider,” and “Homo Sapien.” The last of the live debuts was “Plant Life,” which clocked in at about five minutes this time. Check out fan-shot footage of all these tracks below.
