Chaotic Platters

Parquet Courts

Light Up Gold (What's Your Rupture?)

Andrew Savage might be familiar: He's spent quite a bit of time playing with the fidgety, quippy, Denton rockers Fergus & Geronimo. A couple of years ago he moved to Brooklyn, hooked up with Austin Brown, and made Light Up Gold as Parquet Courts. It's a Fergus-bred mainline of smarts, savvy, and soul-skimming honesty, like the deficient nutritional livelihood of making Swedish Fish a dinner ("Stoned and Starving"), or resigning to the fact that you'll never be able to articulate yourself ("No Ideas"). It's an album of brainy rock songs that state their claims then defiantly step out from beneath the ethereal haze. (Thu., 10:40pm, Red 7)
