Stream New Parkay Quarts Album Content Nausea

    Parquet Courts is Parkay Quarts for their latest release Content Nausea. The record has an official release date of November 11th, but the band has released a flash preview, and the album is currently streaming in full, including a ruffian cover of Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots."

    The name change runs deeper than some punks fucking around on us. Parkay Quarts is representative of the current line-up. Sans Parquet Courts bassist Sean Yeaton and drummer Max Savage, Parkay Quarts is an effort driven mainly by Andrew Savage and Austin Brown, with contributions from Jef Brown (Jackie-O Motherfucker) on the saxophone and Bob Jones (Eaters) on the fiddle. From recording to production in under two weeks, the 12 track LP was done on a four-track tape machine.

    Parkay Quarts is the updated vision of Parquet Courts, adrift from where they began, and separate from their imagined Brooklyn punk purity. The city scape depicted on the album cover shows an oddly unfamiliar New York City with a Freedom-Tower skyline colored in with data — a skyline void of meaning, but brimming with content. New York City is rapidly losing a connection to it's filthy tumultuous yesterdays, only the dirt remains. While Content Nausea is probably the group's most accessible record, Parkay Quarts is more than just the remnant dirt of Parquet Courts. The record is solid and sad. It's mournful, but not quite a funeral. It's the color of punks who aren't twenty anymore, and for that it retains all the authenticity New York seems to be bleeding out.

    Listen to the full stream below, and pre-order here.

    Currently touring as Parkay Quarts, the group is set to make a few appearances as PCPC — the project of Parquet Courts and PC Worship — begin touring as Parquet Courts in December, reuniting with Sean Yeaton and Max Savage for the 2015 leg of the tour.
