Parquet Courts performed a number of tracks from their latest album at Rough Trade Sessions.
The Brooklyn rock band played a short set that included ‘Human Performance’ tracks ‘One Man, No City’, ‘Outside’, and ‘Paraphrased’.
Parquet Courts released their fifth album ‘Human Performance’ earlier this year through Rough Trade. It was their first piece of new music since the mostly instrumental ‘Monastic Living’ EP, released in 2015.
NME’s Ben Homewood awarded the group’s latest effort four stars, writing: “It’s easy to simply pore over Savage’s frantic wordplay – which peaks when evaluating kebab-wrapping techniques on ‘Berlin Got Blurry’ – but the music is equally brilliant.”
Parquet Courts have a number of tour dates lined up in the UK this summer, including a stop off at London’s Field Day.
