Each one has long admired the other's catalog through various incarnations & releases. Now they get a chance to cover one another's songs. Joey Pizza Slice gives tribute to the angular churn of Parquay Court's "Picture of Health", while Parquay Courts turn Joey's synth pop masterpiece "Pretty Girls" into the perfect summer jam that will get you stoked about cloudy days & being ignored all the time - it's just a matter of perspective after all!

Parkay Quarts / Parquet Courts Content Nausea Parkay Quarts is two members (+ friends) of garage-indie-types Parquet Courts! This lofi mini album sounds like early Strokes mixed with a Lou Reed / Iggy Pop hybrid and 80's new wave post-punk Content Nausea was recorded, mixed and mastered in two weeks on a 4-track tape machine. The band wanted something that listeners could "live with over the winter." At 35 minutes, the record lies somewhere between an EP and an LP, but who's counting? On Content Nausea, we find the band confidently exploring sounds that were previously only hinted at; Townes Van Zandt, Warren Zevon, and Dylan are evident points of departure on "Uncast Shadow of a Southern Myth", a lonesome tale about "two men tragically colliding in the deep south," explains Savage. The 13th Floor Elevators get a hat tip via NYC reinterpretation of "Slide Machine", and there's even an unexpected, gender-bending cover of Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots Are Made for Walking". "A personal karaoke standard," explains Savage. Mostly, Content Nausea reflects the rapid change in the band's hometown of New York City, while at the same time emphasizing the changes in the band itself. The record's sleeve is a bleak vision of Freedom-Tower-era NYC flooded by (what else?) content. A city that is becoming increasingly unrecognizable to its romantic history. Not unlike Parkay Quarts.

Parquet Courts Wide Awake Remixes Standout tracks from Parquet Courts’ latest album Wide Awake! get the dancefloor treatment in a collection of remixes available on 12” vinyl out September 28. The A-side features a re-work of the danceable title track by legendary first wave NYC disco pioneer Danny Krivit, who hasdelivered classic vinyl re-edits of tunes from Visage, James Brown, Giorgio Moroder, Kraftwerk, and many more. The B-side features remixes of two tracks by prolific Australian producer and engineer Mikey Young, known for his work in Total Control and Eddie Current Suppression Ring. "Mikey has always impressed me as a musician and person," says Parquet Courts’ A. Savage, "but he’s developed a remarkable talent for producing electronic music, as evidenced by projects like Lace Curtain and Total Control. He has a skill of impressing his genius and personality into a track and elevating it to something more.” 12"
