Listen to Parquet Courts

Do Parquet Courts really need anyone else to blog about them?

I know, likely not. Yet, despite my elitist hipster sense tingling begrudgingly at this once-underground indie-outfit's current swoon of spotlighting (from Rolling Stone to Entertainment Weekly) I  a.) can't help but still dig the depths to where their rough-hewn rock sound is thrown-back - be it nifty/nervy early-80's post-punk or mushmouthed mid-90's nihilistic shambolic pop  and  b.) maybe all those big glossy mags are onto something? (They've never been wrong in the past, right?) I know you may think they're just trying to sell you something, when big zines give 39 words to a band's latest album in a blurb on their back pages, but in this case, you don't have to listen to Rolling Stone, or even me...

You can just listen to Parquet Courts. Stream Tally All The Things That You Broke -EP (What's Your Rupture?) (And then, you can decide if nearly all of their write-ups insistent upon Pavement-namedropping is anywhere near the mark... If I'm dropping a name here, specifically on "The More It Works," it'd be Gang of Four). But then, why can't we say it -- sounds like Parquet Courts.
