a frenzied & frantic ramraid on the history of garage rock with ridiculously infectious melodies & propulsive guitars behind short, sharp tales of quarter-life ennui.

passionate slackers parquet courts' riveting 'americana punk' captures the excitement & perspective on city life that only transplants could feel & filters it through a haze of laid-back '90s alt-rock influence. andrew savage & fellow songwriter austin brown present a series of observational freeze-frames, zeroing in on banal scenes, everyday events, & listless pondering during drifting times. Musically, they draw on some influences not commonly paired, but to great effect. motoric indie rockers like 'borrowed thyme' & 'stoned & starving' call to mind the wandering rock of the feelies or the inward-looking side of the first phase of the modern lovers. contemporaries like tyvek can be heard on the shouty poetry of tracks like 'donuts only' & 'yonder is closer to the heart', while the shadow of '90s staple artists like pavement & sonic youth colours the entire album. “a debut that’s both instantly addictive & lastingly rewarding” 4/5 - the guardian “goddamn great… a powerful, personality-heavy record” 9/10 – nme.

EP review :

the first taste of the brooklyn band’s new music - a mini album that serves as far more than a stopgap in between full lengths; it’s the sound of Parquet Courts stretching out. it's everything you want from the raucous foursome.....& just a little bit more as there's much of what we know & love here, ending on a more challenging 7 minute less lo-fi effort that showcases a different side to the band that we'd happily hear more of. "The hardest-working so-called slackers in indie rock are back already, with fresh tricks and further proof of greatness...‘Tally All The Things That You Broke’ delivers thrills both familiar and new" 8/10 - nme,
