Parquet Courts

The Boise Weekly Critic's Pick …

Baked into punk rock's stripped-down instrumentation and reverb-heavy guitar is an anti-establishment mantra, solidified in the early days of the movement. Years later, Brooklyn indie rockers Parquet Courts--led by Andrew Savage of Denton, Texas' Teenage Cool Kids--are giving the genre a fresh spin.

Much like Treefort Music Fest darlings Foxygen, Parquet Courts add a thoroughly modern, indie rock bent to punk rock roots, creating so-called "Americana punk."

Savage's untamed vocals are paramount, echoing over bright guitar chords before tracks build to a frenetic, cymbal-crashing conclusion on the band's first full-length, Light Up Gold. While most songs are little more than a few minutes long, it's Parquet Courts' relentless instrumentation--punctuated by brief vignettes of funk, classic rock and more indie stylings--that propels each song crashing into the next.
