On the Texan rock band's fourth proper album, they nail their quirky, eclectic mix of 70's inspired rock, punk-rock, post-punk and art-pop better than ever! With the help of super producer Danger Mouse, Wide Awake! hits the sweet spot between all the band's influences and ambitions with more clarity and conciseness that it will result in a 'clicking' moment for many who could never really get into Parquet Courts before. Each track on the record has it's own style, tone and feel that will surprise you track after track, whilst still feeding back into the album's operandi. This is the band's best record to date!

"Parquets Courts' fifth album Wide Awaaaake! - produced by Danger Mouse - is a groundbreaking work, an album about independence and individuality but also about collectivity and communitarianism. The songs, written by Andrew Savage and Austin Brown but elevated to even greater heights by the dynamic rhythmic propulsion of Max Savage (drums) and Sean Yeaton (bass), are filled with their traditional punk rock passion, as well as a lyrical tenderness. The record reflects a burgeoning confidence in the band's exploration of new ideas in a hi-fi context."
