Parquet Courts Vinyl, CD & tapes by Parquet Courts at Norman Records

The slackers who flunked at being slackers. Parquet Courts have too much energy to take it easy, ripping on Pavement but then upping the ante, as if they were kids who fell asleep on their desk and then jolted into action to turn them over. Since Lig...read more »

Parquet Courts
Tally All the Things That You Broke

Honestly I'd be on all night, it's going to be a very long tally indeed. Tally All The Things You Broke was an EP released by Parquet Courts in 2013 under the name Parkay Quarts which they use sometimes but we're not sure why. It features five songs recorded in the initial sessions for their What's Your Rupture? album and showcases their fun and lively sound without particularly being a precursor to what followed. An interim EP, if you will.

Parquet Courts
Mardi Gras Beads

Released in time for Record Store Day’s Black Friday, NYC indie favourites Parquet Courts deliver a special new 7” single housed in a classic Rough Trade sleeve. It pairs ‘Mardi Gras Beads’ - from the group’s most recent studio album Wide Awake! - with a brand new track on the B-side, ‘Seems Kind of Silly’.

Parquet Courts
Monastic Living

After dipping into pseudonym land for two releases and some shows as Parkay Quarts last year, the band now return to the original Parquet Courts moniker for a brand new mini album. Monastic Living appears to be their attempt at a 'Metal Machine Music', and is their first release since signing to Rough Trade worldwide, not just in dear old blighty.

Parquet Courts
Live at Third Man Records

Those hip New York punksters Parquet Courts head on down to Jack White’s Third Man Records in Detroit. They play a show, to rapturous reception, and then cut said show straight into the deep grooves of a vinyl LP, old-time style (just how Jack likes it). Unvarnished and direct, Live At Third Man Records is very nice.

Parquet Courts
Performing Human

Swaggering New York indie-punks Parquet Courts released Human Performance, their third or fifth album (depending on which ones you count), earlier this year. This is an EP of alt-versions and remixes of the title track, cannily titled Performing Human. The remixes come from Eaters and from Chris Pickering out of Future Punx. 12” vinyl EP.

Parquet Courts
Wide Awake Remixes

Parquet Courts album Wide Awake has been a big favourite of Norman staff and customers this year so Wide Awake Remixes should be of interest in our little world. This 12” features three tracks - one remixed by Danny Krivit who has remixed and re-edited for the likes of James Brown and Kraftwerk and two by Australian musician, Mikey Young. 12" on Rough Trade.

Parquet Courts
Content Nausea

Content Nausea is the second release of 2014 from Parquet Courts. Issued under a slightly different name (Parkay Quarts) due to some of the band members completing degrees and starting families, it hints at sounds akin to the likes of Dylan and Warren Zevon, and is the inevitable aftermath of Sunbathing Animal – accessible but more dissonant than ever.

Parquet Courts
Total Football

Does anyone remember the very minor furore that surrounded the release of Beck’s 2006 LP The Information? The gist of it was that the album wouldn't be eligible for a chart placing because, rather than having artwork, the album’s sleeve was a blank background on which you could apply some stickers that came with the album to create whatever cover you wished. It seems like Parquet Courts have let this one slip from their minds too, and it’s a crucial blunder - if it didn’t come with a sticker album, we’d have their leftfield World Cup anthem ‘Total Football’ down as a nailed-on top ten smash.

Parquet Courts
Wide Awake!

Here they come again with their fifth album which is produced by none other than Danger Mouse. This is another bold and groundbreaking work that benefits from full band arrangements with the group playing with their usual true punk rock passion. More confident with each release this is set to be their biggest missive yet. 

Daniele Luppi & Parquet Courts
Milano

New from Italian composer Daniele Luppi, whose 2011 album featured Danger Mouse, Jack White and Norah Jones. This time round, Luppi has enlisted droll indie rockers Parquet Courts (who have also provided some of the artwork for the project) and Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Inspired by 1980s Milan, Milano is another creative album featuring well-loved indie favourites.

Parquet Courts
Captive Of The Sun ft. Bun B

Those who have schooled up on Parquet Courts may well know that Austin Brown’s love for Southern hip-hop is sincere. Just check his 2015 piece for The Talk House. Anyway, here Brown gets to live out the fantasy of many a doe-eyed music lover by stepping into the booth with one of his inspirations. Just one of the many standouts from their excellent Human Performance, ‘Captive of the Sun’ here comes fleshed out with a typically urbane verse by Houston O.G. Bun B. On the flip, heir-to-the-throne-of-DJ Screw DJ Candlestick shows his chopping-not-slopping chops.

Parquet Courts
Sunbathing Animal (single)

After a meteoric rise in a crazy 12 months that saw Parquet Courts go from playing small clubs in their native New York to national TV shows in the USA, they release the first single Sunbathing Animal, from the forthcoming album of the same name. This 7” single is a limited edition of 1000 copies.

Parquet Courts
Human Performance

Brand new music from Parquet Courts, New York’s much-loved indie-punks. Human Performance is a smooth evolution of their sound, as accessible as anything they’ve yet produced, but without losing any of the edge. CD and LP editions available, with the vinyl coming in a gatefold LP with an art booklet. On Rough Trade.

Parquet Courts / Joey Pizza Slice
Split

Parquet Courts and Joey Pizza Slice do a song-swapping split record for Wharf Cat Records. The Courts play their version of ‘Pretty Girls is a Motherfucker’, while Joey jams on Parquet Courts’ ‘Picture Of Health’. Both versions sound fresh and lovely, and the sleeve of the 7” is pleasingly decorated too.

Parquet Courts / Future Punx
LAMC No. 13

Entry number thirteen in the LAMC 7" series sees indie slackers Parquet Courts fight the fittingly titled Future Punx. "This Is Happening Now" is what the Courts have to show for themselves -- who take time out of their busy schedule of writing a riff and playing with it all day from the sofa to send down some music. Future Punx respond with "Spike Train".

Parquet Courts
Light Up Gold

Parquet Courts back when we thought they'd only have one name and stick to it. Press release says this is their debut wikipedia says different but whatever, it was something of a revelation on release, the pre-press on What's Your Rupture gaining the band a deservedly larger fan base who quickly got sucked into their late '70s-style garage rock and new wave.
