Before They Were Medium: Stream Parquet Courts’ First Cassette ‘American Specialities’

PCTAPE art(1)

Parquet Courts’ self released ‘Light Up Gold’ has been one of the most notable releases of 2013 and has given the band, who hail from New York, the sort of cult following A&R types dream of. Before they dropped the aforementioned Lp however they dropped this cassette which, although featured on a few sites, has been largely ignored. While its a much rawer and, at for the most part harder, listen than Light Up Gold you can hear the seeds of the riffs and melodies which went on to make up the new Lp. Its a sort of sketch-book which, for fans of Light up Gold, makes for an absolutely fascinating listen. Stream it above.
