FFF Fest Artist Spotlight: Parquet Courts

10599702_307123006145061_6453325887410383768_nY’all, we are a mere few days away from a holy weekend at Auditorium Shores, which means you should be getting very excited for Fun Fun Fun Fest 2015. Today’s preview features a staple of the lo-fi jangle scene, and surely a band that will make your festival a bit brighter: Parquet Courts. After a few albums, years of building up a live show reputation, and even alternate universe versions of their band (see Parkay Quarts), the band has brought a punk flair to the lo-fi scene, and we love them for it. Take a listen to an older single from the band below, reminisce and get stoked to see them at the fest. Catch them on the Black Stage on Friday at 3:45 or at The Parish at 11:30 on Sunday.

New Jam from Parquet Courts

Parquet-Courts-Sunbathing-Animal-608x608We’ve long had a love affair with What’s Your Rupture Records, and it only makes things better that the little NY label is behind the excellent work of Parquet Courts.  We’re all gearing up towards the release of the bands much anticipated second album, Sunbathing Animal, and the new title track is pretty ridiculous.  It’s a furiously paced rocker, with intertwining guitars and pounding drums; it’s a wonder the band can keep up the frenetic pace throughout the track.  There’s a nice little instrumental breather thrown on immediately following this track, so you’ll have time to rest after pogoing about your room.  Expect a best new music nod here folks.
