Parquet Courts | You Got Me Wonderin’ Now (Video)

October 9, 2013 at 12:32 am Leave a comment

“Seasick’s better than heartsick, baby!” That’s just one memorable line from Parquet Court’s punk Velvet-y thrash out, “You Got Me Wonderin’ Now” (which also has a new video below), off the band’s latest release, “Tally All the Things That You Broke”.  The band posted the entire six-song record for streaming via soundcloud. It’s a cool junkshop of weirdo stylings, including a kind of rap over arcade-game bleeps (“He’s Seeing Paths”) — on a record that comes off like a cuisinart mash of the Minutemen, The Ramones, King Tuff, and the Beasties. It’s hard not to love the band’s gift for quirky strangeness and herky-jerky fun. It wouldn’t work if the music wasn’t good enough in its own right. A song like “Fall On Yr Face” is odd but the rhythm is addictive — working much like the speed and repetition of “The More It Works” — both tracks showcasing frenetic pacing and tightly played guitar riffs. Love this record.  — David D. Robbins Jr.
