New York four-piece Parquet Courts have officially released details about their new full-length, Sunbathing Animal, an announcement they hinted at when they shared a hi-res sheet music "single" early last month. They've given us the title track, too, and it's the same relentless, caffeinated racket that made Light Up Gold (and their subsequent EP) so endearing. Lines like Faces changing shape but represent the same old beast/ I want to flee but I can only stare, chewed-up and spit out like a bad bite of food, remind us that their well of tormented poetry has yet to run dry. Sunbathing Animal is out June 3 via What's Your Rupture/Mom+Pop.
