Don’t get us wrong; we are loving “Stoned and Starving” (the lead single off of Parquet Courts‘ much-raved-about release, Light Up Gold), but we’ve been waiting to hear more new material from the punky Brooklyn-based foursome. As if a musical genie granted our wish, we were thrilled to find that the band recently performed three new tracks for NPR’s renowned World Cafe program. Take a listen and tell us what you think.
Be sure to pick up your tickets to see the band live in Madison at the High Noon Saloon on June 22.

The sky is the limit for these emerging post-punk Brits. Savages‘ Silence Yourself has been called “a disquietingly brilliant debut,” “brutal, jarringly confrontational, and completely singular,” and “ anarchic, itching punk at its most primal, most belligerent.” Fans of Joy Division, The Men, Parquet Courts, and Deerhunter: we’re talking to you!
Earlier this month the band made their American radio debut on Seattle’s KEXP, and their electrifying live performance is now available for your viewing pleasure. Click here to take a peek. We have chills….how ’bout you?
Expect to see and hear a lot more from these talented ladies.

NPR’s now legendary program, All Things Considered, recently asked the question: “Who Is Making Today’s Most Original Music?” In answering, producer and co-host Robin Hilton suggested that the indie gods of Animal Collective might fit the bill.
After all, of their latest release, Centipede Hz, NME remarked, “It’s chaotic and confounding. It will frustrate as much as it delights. And no, not everything they throw at the wall manages to stick. But my, what a lovely mess they’ve made.”
Get your tickets hear the band’s unique sound live in Madison at the Orpheum Theater on March 17 with Dan Deacon.
Who do you think is making (or has made) the most original music you’ve ever heard?
