Parquet Courts
Borrowed Time For Us Records 7"

Article written by Ged M - Apr 6, 2013

There are just 200 vinyl copies of this standout from the Light Up Gold album. We already know the rush of fast and addictive punk-pop with teasing false endings that makes up the brilliant ‘Borrowed Time’. That deals with writer’s block but there’s no danger of that in reality if they can come with something as good as ‘Free Ice’ for the B-side. This is Pavement-y slacker pop with catchy riffs and clever lyrics, taking a sly dig at the West Coast: “’you know the dirt ain’t dirt in California’, she laughed, ‘it’s more like golden dust’”. Add the speed-punk of ‘Smart-Aleck Kid’, with its machine-gun lyrics and military-strength drumbeat, for an essential package.
