Electric Picnic-bound Parquet Courts meet Edwin McFee to talk about international acclaim, being New York’s next big things and why the four-piece are, to borrow a phrase, punk as fuck...
Since the start of 2013, Brooklyn punks Parquet Courts have created something of a stir thanks to their anthemic debut record, Light Up Gold. Taking a dash of Pavement and mixing in some Strokes and Ramones, the opus originally came out on singer/guitarist Andrew Savage’s own label, Dull Tools. But after songs like ‘Stoned And Starving’ received a massive amount of buzz, the LP got re-issued last January via What’s Your Rupture?, catapulting the quartet into indie stardom. When we catch up with guitarist Austin Brown, he confesses that he never expected the attention.
