A most excellent offering from the second Parquet Courts album, which was released a few weeks ago on June 2 via Rough Trade. 'Sunbathing Animal' is already being named as one of 2014's best albums by a few excited folk who have heard it, and I agree that it is a fine LP, coming across like a Pavement/Fall/Velvet Underground hybrid that also packs plenty of fresh energy. From it here is the infectiously relentless 'Black And White'. Parquet Courts are a four piece, originally from Texas, now relocated to Brooklyn. They’ve come a long way in such a short time and seem to have genuinely benefitted from word of mouth rather than press hype.
