Hello again and welcome to Knock Knock: New Music. Kristen here with another new tune for you to check-out. This time it's from Parquet Courts. They're a four-piece indie rock act out of Brooklyn, New York. They got together in 2010 and unveiled their first album, "American Specialties" as a cassette-only release in 2011. "Light Up Gold" followed a year later and received a number of good reviews.
They've got a couple shows coming up around here. They'll be at Royale in Boston this Wednesday May 23rd along with Goat Girl, who you've seen before right here on my website. If you can't make it Wednesday, both bands will be at Port City Music Hall in Portland, Maine on Friday.
"Wide Awake!" is the sixth album from Parquet Courts. It dropped last Friday was produced by Brian Burton, who you may know better as Danger Mouse. Just about everything Danger Mouse puts his hands-on sounds great, in my opinion.
Have a listen to the title-track to "Wide Awake." It's the latest addition to the Knock Knock: New Music playlist!
I hope you're enjoying the tunes and adventure in new music. If you have any comments or questions, I'd love to hear them. Email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
