Parquet Courts today released a video for one of their more mellow songs, “Bodies Made Of,” off the record “Sunbathing Animal.”
The video is curated from hot and sweaty footage from their record-release show at Sugarhill Supper Club in Bedford Stuyvesant in June and interspersed with urbanite shots of graffiti-covered buildings.
Parquet Courts have also announced a new collaboration with members of PC Worship. Andrew Savage and Austin Brown of Parquet Courts will join forces with Justin Frye and other PC Worship members — in a band they’re calling PCPC.
The new incarnation will perform some East Coast dates opening for ex-Sonic Youth chief Thurston Moore.
Maybe Courts leader Andrew Savage says it best:
“Like P-Funk, MinuteFlag, Ciccone Youth, Loutallica and Red House Chili Painters (bet you didn’t know about that one), PCPC is what happens when two legendary rock juggernauts join forces. In this instance, members of PC Worship and Parquet Courts have merged into a NY noise-rock confederacy, each band bringing their own sonic distinctions.”
Of note, Parquet Courts will be known on certain concert dates as Parkay Quarts. We don’t know why.
