    label: rough trade

    Parquets Courts’ fifth album, ‘Wide Awake!’ (produced by Danger Mouse), is a groundbreaking work, an album about independence and individuality but also about collectivity and communitarianism. The songs - written by Andrew Savage and Austin Brown but elevated to even greater heights by the dynamic rhythmic propulsion of Max Savage (drums) and Sean Yeaton (bass) - are filled with their traditional punk rock passion, as well as a lyrical tenderness. The record reflects a burgeoning confidence in the band’s exploration of new ideas in a hi-fi context.
