New Music – Parquet Courts, World Cafe Session

Never ones to stick by the rules of the music industry, Parquet Courts recorded three brand new songs for American radio station World Café back in April. They finally got premiered last night, and if you were a fan of the band’s mesmerising full-length debut ‘Light Up Gold’, you’ll need to check them out right away at

My favourite of the three, ‘Got Me Wondering Now’ (excellent sample lyric alert: “Sunburn’s better than heartburn”) has also made its way into the bands live set recently. Check out this great (and scrappy) fan-recorded video of it:

Parquet Courts return to the UK this August, where they’ll no doubt slay Reading And Leeds Festivals.
