2013 was a busy year for Parquet Courts. It began with a record release show for their full-length Light Up Gold at Death By Audio in Brooklyn, a secondary home to the guys. Fast forward to January 2014, with the band playing Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. A pretty cool story indeed!
What’s Your Rupture? have been kind enough to share the newest single from Parquet Courts, “Sunbathing Animal,” which is the A-side to a Record Store Day 7″, b/w “Pilgrims To Nowhere,” another new song. Now, much in the spirit of Parquet Courts, this single is somewhat “DIY.” It’s DIY in the respect that you have to be able to read sheet music it play it yourself.
Parquet Courts will also be playing a few shows at SXSW. Unlike last year’s flurry of shows in Austin, the band will be playing a total of two. However, the guys will curate a show on Saturday night. They will also be touring in May and June, including dates Naomi Punk.
