Stream: Parquet Courts’ new album as Parkay Quarts, Content Nausea

on November 05, 2014, 11:30am

On November 11th, Parquet Courts will return with Content Nausea, an album attributed to their Parkay Quarts moniker. In anticipation, that album is streaming in full below.

According to a press release, the name change reflects this particular configuration’s lineup: “With one member completing a degree in mathematics, and another starting a family, Content Nausea features mostly the work of Andrew Savage and Austin Brown, with the help of a few friends — Jackie-O Motherfucker’s Jef Brown on saxophone and Eaters’ Bob Jones on fiddle.” Touted as the “band’s most accessible and dissonant recordings,” the 12-track effort was recorded, mixed, and mastered on a four-track tape machine in just under two weeks.

The press release adds, “Content Nausea is the inevitable repercussion to Sunbathing Animal’s pure emotion. Mostly, Content Nausea reflects the rapid change in the band’s hometown of New York City, while at the same time emphasizing the changes in the band itself. The record’s sleeve is a bleak vision of Freedom-Tower-era NYC flooded by (what else?) content. A city that is becoming increasingly unrecognizable to its romantic history. Not unlike Parkay Quarts.”

Pre-orders for the album are ongoing. It’ll be available as a double LP beginning December 2nd.

In related news, Parquet Courts will reunite with bassist Sean Yeaton and drummer Max Savage for a round of 2015 dates. Following a one-off homecoming show in mid-December, Parquet Courts will be on the road from late January through early February. Consult their entire tour schedule below.
