A slow burning success story, Parquet Courts seemed to prove that snotty, left field art-punk could still thrill even after all these years.
Hailing from New York, the band's breakthrough record 'Light Up Gold' is still winning new fans, with its brattish sensibilities matched by a real intelligence.
Phenomenal live, Parquet Courts took time out of their breathless schedule to record a follow up.
'Sunbathing Animal' will be released on June 2nd, with Rough Trade supporting the band here in the UK.
The title cut will be given a standalone release on Record Store Day (April 19th) - check it out below.
