On 17th November, Parquet Courts morph into Parkay Quarts and release their new album / non-album, ‘Content Nausea’.
Parkay Quarts consists of Andrew Savage and Austin Brown, with a couple of special guests on board. It brings together rough cuts and the odd cheeky cover of Nancy Sinatra. The whole record is streaming below in full.
It follows on from the band’s “proper” full-length, ‘Sunbathing Animal’. ‘Content Nausea’ is being described as an “in-between albums album” by label Rough Trade.

What do you do when you’re heading into your 7th album and 2nd decade as a band? If you’re Parquet Courts, then you go out clubbing, take a load of psychedelics and carry on your sweet contrarian way.
It’s a shame that the band don’t commit to one route or the other.
