When we got word that one of our favorite indie bands, Parquet Courts, were going to have their next LP, Wide Awake! (due out on Rough Trade on May 18), produced by Danger Mouse, we had a mix of a bit of shock but were excited to hear what was on the tapes. And we approve after hearing the first single, "Almost Had To Start A Fight / In And Out Of Patience."
But, we are an art magazine, and we were definitely attracted to the video for the track, which was illustrated and directed by A. Savage with animation work by Phil Laslett. In case you didn't know, A Savage is also in the band Parquet Courts, and he's good! It's good! Check it out above!
Wide Awake! will be out 18th May on Rough Trade Records. Pre-order*: https://smarturl.it/wideawakealbum
