Stream Parquet Courts’ Feral ‘Tally All The Things That You Broke’ EP

Parquet Courts, 'Tally All the Things That You Broke' EP, stream

Parquet Courts started 2013 with the irreverent, Essential album Light Up Gold, and the Brooklyn-via-Texas band isn’t through breaking things. The Tally All the Things That You Broke EP, due out October 8 via What’s Your Rupture?, is streaming now at Parquet Courts’ website.

The five-song effort builds on the quirks of the Fergus & Geronimo affiliates‘ breakout album: Poppy, recorder-aided “You’ve Got Me Wonderin’ Now” flows into the dirtier “Descend (The Way).” Then the band takes a hard left into “The More It Works,” a five-minute rant/freakout that builds up to a tense conclusion before settling into the brisk, bluesier “Fall on Yr Face.” Things get really weird at the end: Clocking in at more than seven and a half minutes, “He’s Seeing Paths” sounds like a Bushwick-born take on Butthole Surfers’ “Pepper,” minus the hook.

Parquet Courts will celebrate the release with a Brooklyn show tonight (October 2) before playing October 5 and October 12 at Austin City Limits.
