Playlist: The Best Of Parquet Courts

Parquet Courts are one of my favorite bands of the last couple of years, but they are still relatively new.  The band, formed in 2010 in Brooklyn, NY, consists of Andrew Savage (vocals, guitar), Austin Brown (vocals, guitar), Sean Yeaton (bass) and Max Savage (drums).

The band’s music has been described as snarky punk, but I also hear some other styles mixed in as well. A couple of songs even remind me of Chuck Mosely-era Faith No More (“Dear Ramona”) or old-school Beck (“He’s Seeing Paths”). Even though the band has only released two full-length LP’s and one EP, I put together this playlist with some of their best songs, for those who have never heard the band before.

I really enjoy the humor in their lyrics (as well as in their album artwork), and I think their latest LP Sunbathing Animal is definitely their best work yet.  I really hope to be able to see them in concert eventually!
