nyc // late notice — parquet courts
November 8, 2012 § 1 Comment
Parquet Courts is one of those bands that, if you saw me only once a week, you couldn’t not know how much I love them. Maybe I’d be playing the album front to back at work /// be running to see them after eating one of your sandwiches at another one of your bars /// oh I don’t know.. just talking about them on a street corner.
This has been going on for a while now (eeeh I sound vaguely psychotic), but what with moving-and-hurricanes-and-killing-our-first-roach, I’ve hardly had time to sit and collect these thoughts. Seeing them get a happy lil write-up from Pitchfork kinda gave my lethargy the kick in the butt it needed. Pretty impossible to say “I told you so” if I don’t ever tell you so, isn’t it? Whoa.
Thing is, I’ve recommended this band to very different sorts of people. I’ve dragged friends who had no business liking this band. And everyone does. IT’S CATCHY. It’s nervy. It’s so, so good.
You can listen here…
And if you like it, I would absolutely buy it. I sure did. My cat tried to sit on it and it was a scary moment for both of us.
