Parquet Courts – Borrowed Time


Earlier this month, Brooklyn-based indie rock band Parquet Courts reissued their debut LP, Light Up Gold, via the independent record label What’s Your Rupture. ‘Borrowed Time’ is one of my fav tracks on this album – it is superbly noisy, edgy and EXACTLY what I needed to get going this morning. The track possesses a super catchy guitar riff, energetic and upbeat tempo, and is fused together by a punk-y collaboration of vocals and jittery hi-hat tapping.

Below I’ve also posted the album-titled ‘Light Up Gold’ track for your listening pleasure as well. Cheers and Happy Thursday err’body.

Hi friends, Alex here. I’m a musician, writer and music enthusiast/blogger currently living a fast-paced, music-centric life in NYC. I spent four years at the University of Miami (FL) studying Advertising, Marketing, Art and Music. Growing up, my love of all things music became so overwhelmingly evident that I began taking piano and drum lessons and eventually picked up the guitar as well. I must also admit, I have a hell of a record collection and could probably out-knowledge your parents in Beatles or Miles Davis trivia any day of the week. While I love the oldies, there is nothing I enjoy more than sharing new jams with new people – hence how I ended up on TNJ today. Over the years, I’ve worked as a piano and music theory teacher, and throughout my time in college I worked at music marketing agencies and media firms in NYC, focusing primarily on artist promotions and brand development. I currently hold a gig as a Creative/Copywriter at an experiential agency in Lower Manhattan that caters to a series of popular music and television networks (MTV, VH1, BET, Showtime, FX, AMC, CBS etc.), as well as some of the countries largest music festivals (SXSW, Lollapalooza, MixTape and more.)
