Parquet Courts: Courtney Barnett's male counterpart?
Based out of Queens, New York, Parquet Courts are gaining steam, and for good reason.
I've written about Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett before, and I really like her; in some ways, these guys remind me of her. Parquet Courts have a similar kind of dead-pan singing style - often, not really singing so much as talking alongside music. I really like it. I'm just discovering these guys, and hopefully I'll find more to like. For now, here's a terrific song, "Instant Disassembly," and their set for KEXP in Seattle.
