March 19th 2018 – March 25th 2018 – Parquet Courts – Wide Awake

Our Best In Show this week marks something of a departure for it’s authors. “Wide Awake” by Brooklyn’s Parquet Courts deserves smash hit status – at least in our little corner of the musicverse. Man, this is fun! And the video is great too. The song is the title cut from the Courts’ new album, available in May from Rough Trade Records. For more information visit
