Tuesday June 19th PARQUET COURTS
The Brooklyn-by-way-of-Texas band was formed in 2010 by former Fergus & Geronimo member Andrew Savage on vocals and guitar, guitarist/vocalist Austin Brown, bassist Sean Yeaton, and drummer Max Savage. The band played often in the greater New York area when they released the first album, American Specialties, exclusively on cassette in late 2011.
Now on their fourth release Wide Awake,! songs written by Savage and Brown were influenced by a wider range of sounds and artists. Dance-punk, folky indie pop, and classic rock all getting a look. Danger Mouse's production touch led to it being “the band's most diverse and accessible record yet”.
