Finally, Hear That New Parquet Courts Song

April 1, 2014 | Andy Cush

A funny thing that no one seemed to notice when Parquet Courts “released” their new “single” “Sunbathing Animal” on sheet music last month: the song sits on one chord for almost its entire length, rendering all those notes on the page close to unnecessary (more efficient instructions might have simply read “Just play B Major”).

Today, the band released the actual recording, and it sounds pretty close to what you’d imagine: production is a little cleaner than it was on their debut and the EP, but the band — especially frontman Andrew Savage — is as frantic as ever. A full album, also titled Sunbathing Animal, arrives via What’s Your Rupture? June 3.
