Parquet Courts at Market Hotel (August 13, 2016)

By Will Oliver, November 10th 2016


On the unbelievably hot day that was August 13, Brooklyn’s Parquet Courts sold out Market Hotel, another local stop in support of this year’s terrific Human Performance (released via Rough Trade Records).

This was a slightly more intimate performance than when I saw them earlier this year at Webster Hall, and it resulted in a much more compact performance from the group, who always offer a different setlist and feel no matter how many times you see them (and my count keeps growing).

Find the setlist posted below, along with a gallery of photos of Parquet Courts, as well as Detroit punk rockers Decisions and Brooklyn natives Jordonna, who both opened.

Parquet Courts at Webster Hall (May 20, 2016)

By Will Oliver, September 11th 2016 — with 1 comment


On May 20 Parquet Courts headlined Webster Hall in support of their typically well received new album Human Performance, their first full-length album with Rough Trade Records.

The band was chatty and full of banter in between songs, the liveliest I’ve seen them at a show. Musically, they delivered a fiery performance, one that really took shape once the the one-two punch of “Master of My Craft” and “Borrowed Time” kicked in and the front of the crowd morphed into a sweaty mosh pit that rarely let up.

Find some shots of their performance along with Brooklyn rockers, and Captured Tracks signees, B Boys, who opened the show.

Parquet Courts

It was just last December that Parquet Courts played to a sold out crowd at Webster Hall. The hard-working band have no plans of stopping, playing the much more intimate Palisades next Monday night (as well as Tuesday). All this after non-stop touring last year, after releasing two albums: Sunbathing Animal + Content Nausea.

Both shows are of course sold out, but keep an eye on the ticket page in case they release more. There’s always secondary markets as well. Chances to see the local rockers play such tiny spaces are probably going to become a rarer thing, so if you can find your way out to one of the shows, I’d definitely recommend making the move. They never disappoint.

In January they stopped by Letterman to play “Bodies Made Of.” Find that posted after the jump.

Parquet Courts - Black And White - Music Video

It’s only appropriate that Parquet Courts have released a black and white video for “Black and White” the stunning punk-anthem off their new album Sunbathing Animal, which was released today via What’s Your Rupture?/Mom + Pop.

The video was co-directed by the band’s Austin Brown along with Johann Rashid. It was shot in Bed Stuy, home of frontman Andrew Savage. The video was inspired by the experimental films of William Burroughs and Brion Gysin and meant to “represent the depth and complexity of the personal stories which exist in a simple city stroll.”

Parquet Courts – Instant Disassembly

By Will Oliver, May 20th 2014


Parquet Courts new album Sunbathing Animal is out soon (June 6 viaWhat’s Your Rupture?/Mom + Pop).

We already heard two tracks from the album: the title track and “Black and White.” Now they’ve hit back with yet another, a song called “Instant Disassembly.” It’s a rather mellow effort from them, but it still works its charm amply throughout its seven minute run-time.

Enjoy it below.

Parquet Courts Seth Myers

Last week Parquet Courts stopped by Late Night With Seth Myers to play new track “Black and White” which is off their upcoming album Sunbathing Animal (hear the title track here).

I heard them play the track earlier this year when they played at The Acheron in Brooklyn and it sounded just as fierce as it does on the Myers performance, only they have Fred Armisen (Myers bandleader) help out on guitar towards the end, which was very cool.

Watch the performance below.

[music video]: Parquet Courts – Sunbathing Animal

By Will Oliver, April 25th 2014

Parquet Courts - Sunbathing Animal

Parquet Courts will release new album Sunbathing Animal on June 3 via What’s Your Rupture/Mom+Pop. They already released first single and title track and have also given it the music video treatment.

They went with something a bit more minimalistic this time around. The video features frontman Andrew Savage’s cat Frida, at home. Directed by Savage along with Andy Capper, the video, shot in black and white, oddly works. To read about the inspiration and making of the video, head over to Noisey. Read the rest of this entry »
