Ok, we know. Lots of folks are talking about this record. It’s got some hype. This band has some hype. But you know what? Most of the hype is true and well deserved. The reviews are true! This record rules. The Pavement fan in us can’t stop listening to it. But it’s also something fresh. It’s rock for sure, but it’s something different as well. It’s slacker indie rock in 2014 when most new stuff coming out today goes through a laptop before it’s pressed on vinyl or is synth and reverb tinged to oblivion. This record takes us back to the golden era of 90s indie rock while also bringing something new to the table in 2014–a fresh breath. Parquet Courts’ last record, “Light Up Gold,” also ruled, and we sold a bunch of copies of it. If you liked that record, then you’re gonna freak out over this one. The singer also does the cover artwork for all their records, and he’s really good at it. The album art is some of the best out there at the moment. Buy the slab of vinyl, download the digital version onto your phone, and nod your head along to these songs until you’re singing along to every track.
For fans of: Pavement, Sonic Youth, Ty Segall, Pixies, Replacements
