The debut release from Texas transplants Parquet Courts fell under the radar, due in no small part to its exclusive release on cassette. Luckily, New York-based What's Your Rupture re-released the Light Up Gold LP, a refreshingly brisk album of snotty-n-stoned punk with crisp guitar breaks and a ramshackle rhythm section anchored by the aptly named brothers Andrew and Max Savage, earlier this year. Whip-smart lyricist Andrew has said his writing influences include Don DeLillo and Thomas Pynchon, and the four-piece has a reputation for being a tight live outfit; catch their biggest New York gig yet.
