Next: Parquet Courts

Originally published on Mon February 4, 2013 1:23 pm

The up-and-coming band Parquet Courts showcases some refreshingly raw '70s punk vibes on its first full-length album, Light Up Gold, released last August.

Parquet Courts' lead vocalists and songwriters, Austin Brown and Andrew Savage, met at a record-listening club while attending the University of North Texas. After moving to New York City, the pair teamed up with Savage's brother, Max, and bassist Sean Yeaton, to release their EP American Specialties in 2011.

The band is currently touring in support of Light Up Gold. Hear two tracks from the album on this installment of World Café: Next.
