Parquet Courts shares new song, EP expected in October

Parquet Courts has a new song, You’ve Got Me Wonderin’ Now, that will be on a new EP coming out in October. It sounds like more good stuff from these guys. Listen to the track below. The EP Tally All the Things That You Broke is scheduled for release October 8.

Pitchfork adds M.I.A., Wire, Yo La Tengo, Parquet Courts, Waxahatchee,Woods

Pitchfork rounded out the lineup for its annual three-day Chicago festival and there’s a lot to like this year. I’ve said that this is one of the most interesting music festivals regardless of headliners. The up-and-coming early acts are often a highlight for me.

The biggest name added to the fest is M.I.A., who will play Sunday night before  R. Kelly (at least that’s how the schedule appears now). Also joining the lineup are indie vets Yo La Tengo (Sunday) and the punk legends of Wire (Friday).

What really excites me are the additions of Woods, Frankie Rose and Mikal Cronin Friday; Parquet Courts and Metz Saturday; and Waxahatchee and Glass Candy Sunday. But there are a number of other highlights. See the full schedule here. The festival runs July 19-21.
