Track of the Day: Parquet Courts – Instant Disassembly

The British hype-machine’s tendency to over-glamourise any vaguely promising guitar act means that, historically, they’ve marketed some stinkers (anybody remember Mona?). But eventually, they’d have placed their money on a safe bet. Indeed this tendency is subject to less abandon when punting up-and-comers from across the Atlantic –but it would appear that the New York-based Parquet Courts have made themselves too irresistible not to warrant local-hero treatment. Not to say that the garage-punk quartet have been ignored by their compatriots; the American press too have developed a polite obsession.

‘Instant Disassembly’ is the third single off the hotly anticipated Sunbathing Animal, coming 3rd June via What’s Your Rupture? and Mom + Pop. From the hardcore-rooted title-track, to the distinctly post-Light Up GoldBlack & White’, to the easy-going flavour of ‘Instant Disassembly’, the band have evidently spent the last few months scouring their expansive influences for varied inspiration. Running at over 7 minutes, the new track is the longest cut released by the band that isn’t a badass-but-repetitive Beastie Boys-esque rap song. Austin Brown swaps his typically smooth guitar leads for emotive plucks that serve as a conduit for a wearier, more earnest delivery from Andrew Savage.
