Parquet Courts have shared an official music videos for "Bodies", the opening track from this year's "Sunbathing Animal" LP. Directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, the London-based duo responsible for the forthcoming Nick Cave film "20,000 Days on Earth", the grainy clip was shot at the band's recent show at Sugarhill Supper Club in Bed Stuy. More photos from which can be found on Brooklyn Vegan here.
Speaking of Parquet Courts shows, we've got some more for you! The band have announced a handful of US / EU dates throughout the rest of the year, as well as two short runs under the guise of PCPC, a Parquet Courts x PC Worship supergroup. PCPC will be supporting Thurston Moore for his East Coast dates next month.
PCPC is: Like P-Funk, MinuteFlag, Ciccone Youth, Loutallica and Red House Chili Painters (bet you didn't know about that one), PCPC is what happens when two legendary rock juggernauts join forces. In this instance, members of PC Worship and Parquet Courts have merged into a NY noise-rock confederacy, each band bringing their own sonic distinctions. Spawning from a long history of playing shows together as separate entities, PCPC is born out of an aesthetic solidarity, and will to create something new. Look for them this Fall in select cities throughout USA and Europe.
