Human Performance

Parquet CourtsSKU: RTRADLP810



Human Performance is a bit of a curious title for an album by Parquet Courts, a group whose regular-dude persona is one conspicuously lacking in artifice. But the band makes at least a nominal effort to slightly expand their instrumental palette throughout - some congas here, some keyboard fills there, some car horns elsewhere. But more than that, the album expands Parquet Courts's emotional depth beyond adolescent snark and toward a core of vulnerability. The band keeps the goofing off to a minimum, sequestering it mostly to the short “I Was Just Here,” which caps dissonant, off-kilter riffs with a brief Ramones-esque coda.
