7digital What we said: News of a new Parquet Courts album in 2018 really has no right to be as attractive a proposition as it is. Still ostensibly channelling the rickety strain of post-punk revival that peaked in The Strokes’ heyday, the Brooklyn band could almost seem anachronistic in an era characterised by genre-hopping. And yet, with this excellent follow-up to 2016’s (also extremely good) Human Performance, Andrew Savage and co have once more acquitted themselves as one of the most consistent bands on the circuit. Their secret? Subtle innovation. From the cacophonous, almost Stranglers-esque swagger of ‘Violence’ to the cowbell-heavy, punk-funk feel of the title track, Wide Awake finds the four-piece freshening up their musical palette once more, with superb results.
