Parquet Courts Debut "Smart Aleck Kid" + Tour Dates

[consequenceofsound.net] Texas turned New York post-punk rockers Parquet Courts return with a paddywagon of tour dates and an astounding 66-second track that aptly summarizes the brilliant, aggressive fuel that comes from unadulterated punk rock (think of an early, caffeinated Sex Pistols). It’s a non-medicated mess of noise that’s nasaly in all the ways that elicit disgusted, shaken heads from your folks. Stream it below.

“Smart Aleck Kid” serves as the B-Side to the band’s new single, “Borrowed Time”, out March 18th through What’s Your Rupture?

In related news, we recently spoke with the band about seeing America, their latest effort, Light It Up Gold, and how they’re surviving New York City. Read that HERE.
