NPR is streaming “Sunbathing Animal”

NPR “first listen” is streaming Parquet Courts’ upcoming “Sunbathing Animal.” It might be worth your while to check out, if you like an updated punk sound peppered with random lyrics, and irreverent guitar hooks that laze through it all.

The indie band is also releasing a “super limited edition” of the album, out today, with “Albanian Gunsmith” artwork done by Andrew Savage. Visiting sunbathinganimal.com will give you a heads-up of records stores that are carrying it. There’s only a handful across the U.S. It wouldn’t be “super limited” without making it difficult to find.
