2019/01/21 – Parquet Courts – Wide Awake

Album of the year material right here. This track is super fun and much more accessible than a lot of Parquet Courts previous stuff. I kind of slept on them for a while but there have been a few tracks in the past that have grabbed me before this album, specifically The More it Works and Human Performance, but this album is solid from start to finish. His vocals may take a bit of getting used to, but the band is incredible and the lyrics are often poignant and clever, if not a bit preachy at times.

My rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Last time I heard it: Tough to say, but definitely in the past few days. The album has been on heavy rotation for the past month or so.

What do you think?
