This album IS. PURE. GOLD. An epic punkish Americana LP from indie heroes Parquet Courts. It's always amazingly hard to follow up an album as successful as their last, Light Up Gold, but Parquet Courts has done so in some unexpected and very successful ways. The tunes are sharper, a bit harder, free-ranging and sprawling, and actually poetic and beautiful if you can imagine all that wrapped into one! Filter Mag put it best: "“SHOCKER ALERT: Parquet Courts recorded a bunch of songs, and they’re really really great. Again."
