Much like Pavement before them, Parquet Courts wear their influences on their raggedy sleeves. The New York quartet expands on the restless aesthetic forged by the Modern Lovers and the Feelies (Television haunts the chiming guitar interplay, too, but their bite-size songs make “Marquee Moon” seem like a symphony). On top of the shambling mêlée, Parquet Courts mumble and shout conversational, seemingly off-the-cuff lyrics, like the wild-eyed guy in the alley who’ll say anything to make a sale—or a friend. It isn’t mature or sophisticated, but it’s stupid in the way that only truly smart music, like the first Ramones album, can be. Instead of brats and bats, they sing about ducking and dodging and frying and abiding. Deep? Not so much. Fun? Most definitely. KATHY FENNESSY
