LISTEN: Parquet Courts Share New Song and Album Details

SHOCKER ALERT: Parquet Courts recorded a bunch of songs, and they’re really really great. Again.


The prolific NYC quartet just dropped the details on their upcoming album, Sunbathing Animal. On top of that, they generously gave us a listen to the title track, and it’s a rocker.


Previously available only in sheet music form, this gives the first taste of how their new record has shaped up, with super exciting results. Sunbathing Animal has been mainstay in their (increasingly amazing) live sets for the past year or so, and sets a high bar for the new record, which they’ll no doubt clear. Sunbathing Animal is out 6/3 on What’s Your Rupture/Mom + Pop. This is certainly going to put them solidly near the top of the list in the "Illist Band in All of the Land" awards, more commonly known as the "IBIATLs," which I just made up.
