Parquet Courts’ new mini-LP Monastic Living contains just one song with words; the remaining eight tracks aren't just wordless, they're also tuneless. It feels like their first true statement of total rejection
Parquet Courts, also known as Parkay Quarts, is an American rock band from New York City. The band consists of Andrew Savage (vocals, guitar), Austin Brown (vocals, guitar, keyboard), Sean Yeaton (bass) and Max Savage (drums). The band released their debut album, American Specialties, as a limited cassette release, in 2011. The band's second studio album, Light Up Gold (2012), was initially released on Savage's Dull Tools label and later reissued on What's Your Rupture? in 2013.
Album · 2015 · 9 Songs. Filled with chunky rhythmic experiments (the expansive title cuts) and psychedelic textures ( Frog Pond Plop and Poverty and Obedience ) the end result is casually transcendent

Monastic Living was the second Parquet Courts album I've heard and, if you know it, you are probably thinking "holy shit!". Bold and brash, Monastic Living takes something I want the band to do more of to the absolute limit. The challenging, tone-deaf pieces, for most people, don't serve much function outside of the initial shock value that I think PC was going for. But I quite like the weird, dissonant textures and experimentation. I'd rather have this than them falling into a pattern of releasing the same, tired and clichéd garage rock album 10 times in a row. Monastic Living is a rather powerful statement.
Both of the group's 2014 albums, Sunbathing Animal and Content Nausea, were given European issues by Rough Trade, and 2015 EP Monastic Living was exclusively released by the London-based indie institution. The release is easily the group's most abrasive, experimental recording to date, consisting either of extended, repetitive workouts or shorter, fragmentary pieces.
