Parquet Courts - Light Up Gold lp (Dull Tools-WYR)


"Little was said about New York (via Texas) band PARQUET FLOORS' debut
effort, American Specialties. Released exclusively on cassette tape, the
quasi-album was an odd collection of 4 track recordings that left those
who were paying attention wanting more. A year of woodshedding live
sets passed before the Courts committed another song to tape. The band's
first proper LP, Light Up Gold, is a dynamic and diverse foray into the
back alleys of the American DIY underground. Bright guitars swirl
serpentine over looping, groovy post-punk bass lines and drums that
border on robotic precision. While the initial rawness of the band's
early output remains, the songwriting has gracefully evolved. Primary
wordsmiths A. SAVAGE and AUSTIN BROWN combine for a dynamic lyrical
experience, one part an erudite overflow of ideas, the other an exercise
in laid-back observation. Lyrically dense, the poetry is in how it
flows along with the melody, often times as locked-in as the rhythm
section. Recorded over a few days in a ice-box practice space, Light Up
Gold is equally indebted to Krautrock, The Fall, and a slew of
contemporaries like Tyvek and Eddy Current Suppression Ring." - Dull Tools
