4. Parquet Courts | Sunbathing Animal + Content Nausea | What's Your Rupture? / Mom + Pop

Parquet Courts makes shambolic guitar songs, the kind that only casually refer to their own intelligence and sound suspiciously like they were written in an hour. They also make a ton of them, as their two-album effort this year proves. Sunbathing Animal is the star of the bunch, a no-bullshit set featuring career highlights "Instant Disassembly" and "Black and White" that for all their nonchalance, prove with casual brilliance that there's no band more worth following.
