Brooklyn quartet and Texas transplants, Parquet Courts' August record release of Light Up Gold flew under the radar this summer, but it shouldn't have. The group's sound is a throwback to the early post-punk days, conjuring elements from late-70s bands Wire and Television with a fresh twist. Setting them apart is the way Andrew Savage (member of Teenage Cool Kids and Fergus & Geronimo) shouts, spits, sings, and speaks over catchy guitar hooks and solid, economical drumming. The album runs like a collection of poems put to music, ranging from the nostalgia of youth and purpose to walking around Queens high, looking for food.
Parquet Courts will be visiting Chicago for a performance at the Empty Bottle on December 27. The Gizmos and Thee Yolks are also on the bill, and advance tickets are still available.
