Parquet Courts

Parquet Courts' special breed of "Americana punk" began in 2011 when some former Texans who had relocated to Brooklyn began practicing andgigging regularly. The band was centered around Fergus & Geronimo songwriter Andrew Savage, and also included guitarist Austin Brown,bassist Sean Yeaton, and drummer Max Savage.

Parquet Courts' special breed of "Americana punk" began in 2011 when some former Texans who had relocated to Brooklyn began practicing andgigging regularly. The band was centered around Fergus & Geronimo songwriter Andrew Savage, and also included guitarist Austin Brown,bassist Sean Yeaton, and drummer Max Savage. Much like in Teenage Cool Kids, the band Andrew Savage still split his time with back in hishometown of Denton, Texas, Parquet Courts produced noisy indie rock with jagged punk edges borrowed from late-'90s guitar-heavy alternativeacts. The band played often in the greater New York area and released its first album, American Specialties, exclusively on cassette in late2011. A more widely distributed full-length, Light Up Gold, was issued on the Dull Tools label in the summer of 2012, and the band's firstU.S. tour followed by the end of the year. Light Up Gold quickly caught on and was reissued on Brooklyn label What's Your Rupture? inearly 2013 to wider distribution. They became darlings of the indie rock world thanks to the response to the record from the press, constanttouring, and their intractable charm. They spent much of the time not on the road in the studio, recording songs for their next record, with afive-song EP, Tally All the Things That You Broke, surfacing late in 2013. Their second album, Sunbathing Animal, was released inJune of 2014, again on What's Your Rupture?, and again, members of the band followed up with a collection of more slapdash recordings almostimmediately, releasing the album-length Content Nausea as Parkay Quarts in November of the same year. http://www.allmusic.com/artist/parquet-courts-mn0003031551/biography « hide
