Last week Thursday’s Track of the Day was the spectacular ‘Uncast Shadow of a Southern Myth’. This week, Parquet Courts as Parkay Quarts have dropped another single off the forthcoming Content Nausea due mid-November – their second offering this year after the excellent Sunbathing Animal.

Here, they team up with members from mysterious New York collective, PC Worship.

A beneath-the-surface groove undercuts the whole meditation, with patches of tuneful relief to bring it back to earth. The guys mentioned a 13th Floor Elevators influence on this record, which this track brings out with a menacing take on psychedelic concoctions. You can listen to the track here, but leave your expectations at the door:
