Parts & Labor is an US experimental rock/noise rock band signed to Jagjaguwar Records. The group was formed in 2002 by B.J.

Hailing from Brooklyn, Parts & Labor are a boisterous bunch of art kids that combine sparse electronics, wiry guitars and pop hooks into uplifting experimental noise rock.

Forming in 2002 after bassist BJ Warshaw and keyboardist Dan Friel met at Brooklyn's The Knitting Factory, the band have toured relentlessly with Christopher Weingarten on drums, finding that their avant garde noise rock fitted in very well with the scenes being carved out by TV on the Radio and Deerhunter.

After the departure of Weingarten to pursue a blogging career the band recruited Joe Wong for their Autumn 2007 dates. Finding second guitarist in renowned sound artist Sarah Lipstate, their sound has become a little more experimental recently, and yet still retains enough of that pop-punk magic to keep it accessible. « hide
