Brooklyn's Parquet Courts, who released the fantastic and underrated Light Up Gold last year with a reissue in January, announced today that they'll be following it up with a short five-song EP called Tally All the Things That You Broke. After what seems like months of constant touring and festival playing, the release is a welcome update from the verbose punks. The first track to come form it is “You've Got Me Wonderin' Now" and its beginning held-out chord is the same note that is used to open Light Up Gold, making it another self-referrential and self-aware track for the group. On the track, the addition of what sounds like a compressed pan flute and some heady, verbose lyrics make the song simultaneously reliably Parquet Courts while also throwing us slightly off the trail.
The EP is going to be a great one, without doubt, and will release on October 8 through What's Your Rupture?. Along with the EP announcement, Parquet Courts sent out a limited run of 250 tapes to fans (shown below) with a phone number to call and leave a voicemail for the band. The tagline on the tape is “Please share with the rest of humanity” so you better get on it—(917) 471-2855—standard rates apply.
