Parquet Courts Take a Short Trip ‘Outside’

The always-productive Parquet Courts have shared another advance track from their upcoming fifth studio album Human Performance, with the sub-two-minute chimer “Outside.” The song is a typically deadpan, infectious little jigsaw puzzle for the band, where ringing Link Wray chords run verse immediately into chorus, as frontman Andrew Savage bleats “I tried to break all the objects that I threw when I kept the tidiest of town life / I tried to sing all the voices that I knew, I’ve been screaming softly in a loud mic.”

Listen here, and look for Human Performance on Rough Trade come April 8.
