Light Up Gold
Album lyrics Parquet Courts

Release date: January 2013

Light Up Gold is the debut full-length album by the Brooklyn-based rock quartet from Texas, Parquet Courts, released on January 15, 2013 on What's Your Rupture?

"This record is for the over-socialized victims of the 1990's 'you can be anything you want', Nickelodeon-induced lethargy that ran away from home not out of any wide-eyed big city daydream, but just out of a subconscious return to America's scandalous origin," wrote Savage in the album's liner notes. Recorded over a few days in a ice-box practice space, Light Up Gold is equally indebted to Krautrock, The Fall, and a slew of contemporaries like Tyvek and Eddy Current Suppression Ring.
