Artist Info

Parquet Courts

Parquet CourtsPowered by Audioscrobbler™
Parquet Courts is a band from New York City. At the center of the group is A. Savage, who at this point is known for his collaborations with projects like Fergus & Geronimo, Teenage Cool Kids and Wiccans. Savage is joined by three other musicians (“three quarters Texans and three quarters Pisces”) and describes the bands’ debut release as THE FALL meets NEIL YOUNG. On the band’s debut release, “American Specialties”, this all makes sense. The quartet wanders through the American and British underground, picking away their favorite parts with confidence. The lyrics, when intelligible, are bizarre and dramatic. “She looked at me like a fry pan reducing,” moans Savage, from the same lustful subconscious built by the darker moments of psychedelia. Then at times, such as on the 70’s folkish “Square States”, thoughts are more sentimental and transparent. The setting for “American Specialties” ranges from a crusty Brooklyn bodega, to an endless Texas desert. If that sort of soundscape appeals to your wondering mind, then I’m sure you’ll stumble across Parquet Courts sooner or later.

Parquet Courts new album 'Sunbathing Animal' is to be released in June 2014 on What's Your Rupture?/Mom and Pop (US) Rough Trade Records (rest of the world).
