‘Content Nausea’ – New album by Parkay Quarts !
For once not just one track but a whole album simply because it’s a damn good one (and eh… because I’m a huge PC fan).
Only five months after ‘Sunbathing Animal’ two Parquet Courts members are already back with thrilling new stuff. According to a press release, the name change reflects this particular configuration’s lineup: “With one member completing a degree in mathematics, and another starting a family, ‘Content Nausea’ features mostly the work of Andrew Savage and Austin Brown, with the help of a few friends…”
I had a couple of spins and it’s a another cool opus from the Texan New Yorkers (well two of them, that is). Warning: don’t scare when you hear them cover Nancy Sinatra’s classic ‘These boots are made for walkin’.
PC are my 21th century’s Velvet Underground !
I saw them last year performing in Brussels. It was the day Lou Reed died (Oct. 17, 2013). The Courts played an emotional and stunning version of VU’s ‘What Goes On’ that night. Unforgettable ! Can’t wait to see them live again next week…
