PARQUET COURTS CONTENT NAUSEA Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:
· ‘Content Nausea’, Parquet Courts / Parkay Quarts’ second
release of 2014, is the inevitable repercussion to ‘Sunbathing Animal’’s pure emotion. With one member completing a degree in mathematics and another starting a family, ‘Content Nausea’ features mostly the work of Andrew Savage and Austin Brown, with the help of a few friends (Jackie-O Motherf*cker’s Jef Brown on saxaphone and Eaters’ Bob Jones on fiddle).
· Featuring some of the band’s most accessible and dissonant
recordings, ‘Content Nausea’ was recorded, mixed and mastered in two weeks on a 4-track tape machine. The band
wanted something that listeners could “live with over the
Winter.”
· At 35 minutes, the record lies somewhere between an EP and
an LP but who’s counting? On ‘Content Nausea’ we find the band confidently exploring sounds that were previously only
hinted at; Townes Van Zandt, Warren Zevon and Bob Dylan are
evident points of departure on ‘Uncast Shadow Of A Southern
Myth’, a lonesome tale about “two men tragically colliding in the deep South,” explains Savage. The 13th Floor Elevators get a hat tip via the reinterpretation of ‘Slide Machine’ and there’s even an unexpected, gender-bending cover of Nancy Sinatra’s ‘These Boots Are Made For Walking’. “A personal karaoke standard,” explains Savage.
· Mostly, ‘Content Nausea’ reflects the rapid change in the band’s hometown of New York, while at the same time emphasizing the changes in the band itself. The record’s sleeve is a bleak vision of Freedom-Tower-era NYC flooded by (what else?) content. A city that is becoming increasingly unrecognizable to its romantic history. Not unlike Parquet Courts.
· Don’t forget to catch a glimpse of the rare flower that is PCPC, the collaboration between Parquet Courts’ Savage and Brown and members of PC Worship, as it blossoms for a handful of European dates and then likely closes for all eternity.
