Ellen has good taste in music, apparently. Great performance too!

Barstool’s Big Cat on bass, everyone. He’s doing so great. Also, Savage going full DEVO is a nice touch.

This is a prime example of Total Football in application. "Collectivism and autonomy are not mutually exclusive!" These guys are my musical heroes.

only now that I've seen a member of Daniel Striped Tiger on Ellen can I truly say I've seen everything

I'm sure the brain-dead NPCs who watch Ellen had NO idea what to make of this band at all.

Such a tremendously good band - love it

When you and the homies write a joke song about cocaine and you end up on Ellen.

Parquet Courts aren't a punk band.

Underrated band
Total Talking Heads influence/vague ripoff
vyrus2 (5 months ago)
Which in turn was Fela Kuti influence/vague ripoff. Funk and african poly-rhythmic music existed before and outside of Talking Heads, even though they did it extremely well

these is so much different from the other album that was fucking punk in maximum expression

Control Oz (6 months ago)
Wtf are they doing on Ellen? It was hilarious watching mums have a dance but this is by far the weakest song on the album.
Connor Lodge (6 months ago)
This performance is so good! Just wish the Congo's and djambe (spelling?), we're mixed with some more love, very hard though in a live setting like that but they a lil flat sounding. Probs nit picking but I love how much fun they having

I hate the parquet courts. They're far too good. It's so selfish of them to be so good.

Great song
Colby (6 months ago)
Many people’s main negative arguments about rap is the lack of talent when it comes to writing and that many of the songs are repetitive... explain what’s different about this then lol
r0b0hobo (6 months ago)
Colby a lot of early rap was based on sampling "repetitive" songs like this and rapping over it. Rap and groove based music will always be linked in that way. I don't think it takes a lot of talent to write a song like this but deffinetly some creativity to sit down with the boys and crank out a fun tune. Not every band has to be TOOL or Radiohead. The bass part is cool though.

Italian Spaceboy (6 months ago)
That's it? All the hype for this mono-chord, mono-theme, mono-melody "song"? The Chili Peppers were doing this in the mid 80s but wich much more talent.

Gotta give a new generation a chance to experience that sorta thing while it is relevant to them
Cyka Blyat (6 months ago)
Nah you should listen to the whole album. Pitchfork=8.0/10 theneedledrop=9/10 NME=4/5 these are just to name a few music critics' opinion on their new album.

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS!!!!!! I'm so lit to see them live soon!
MrKGHunter (6 months ago)
Fuck. Just not feeling it, really love their old albums. Liked em much better when they were ripping off The Fall/Pavement. Screw this Talking Heads jive. Hate to be that guy....oh well. When Rolling Stone starts stroking you, it's over.
