Parquet Courts Wide Awake!

Indie rock band Parquet Courts is back with Wide Awake!, their first album since 2014. Jim thinks they are the perfect slacker band, and their lyrics come equipped with plenty of socialist rhetoric. He adds that "They‘ve got a formula, and they work it, and it’s delightful every time." Greg, agrees that they have a solid punk rock formula; however, he thinks that this record does show growth, particularly in their work with producer Brian Burton, also known as Danger Mouse. Songs like Wide Awake bring in funky "danceable elements"; and he was also surprised to find“tenderness”on tracks like Back To Earth. Both Jim and Greg give Wide Awake! a Buy It.
