Light Up Gold by Parquet Courts
Released: Jan 2013
Label: What's Your Rupture
This NYC-via-Texas band only breaks the four-minute mark once on their scrappy debut, and that punk sensibility drives their music. Add tight beats and post-punk bass, and quickly their rock flies out of the garage and into darker, more adventurous terrain. Co-leaders Austin Brown and Andrew Savage write with a stream-of-consciousness laxity (just hear the journey of "N Dakota"), along the way name-dropping Socrates (in the boisterous "Master of My Craft") and spilling out their thoughts in stoner vision ("I went to a shrink/ And he found my brain/ And I had no ideas is what he found").
