Parquet Courts - Light Up Gold LP (Glow In The Dark Vinyl)

What's Your Rupture

Though made up of Texan transplants, Parquet Courts are a New York band. Throw out the countless shallow Brooklyn bands of the blasé 2000's: Light Up Gold is a conscious effort to draw from the rich culture of the city, the bands like Sonic Youth, Bob Dylan, and the Velvet Underground that are not from New York, but of it. Light Up Gold, is a dynamic and diverse foray into the back alleys of the American DIY underground. This record is for the over-socialized victims of the 1990's 'you can be anything you want' Nickelodeon-induced lethargy that ran away from home not out of any wide-eyed big city daydream, but just out of a subconscious return to America's scandalous origin. It's punk, it's American, it's New's Parquet Courts' Light Up Gold!

"Parquet Courts definitely have a sound: nervvy '80s style Amerian indie, the kind found on labels like SST and Homestead." - Brooklyn Vegan
