This Week's Mercury Music Section

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Wed, Jan 16, 2013 at 3:38 PM

PARQUET COURTS Taco lovin--just like regular folks!

Another week, another Mercury music section that—ATTENTION. We interrupt this weekly summary post for very important breaking news: Danish metal band Anubis Gate have announced the departure of drummer Morten Sørensen. Fortunately, the band have announced the name of their new drummer. Morten Sørensen shall be replaced by a new drummer by the name of... Morten Sørensen. No, that is not a typo, and yes, they are different people. What a coup! They don't even have to redo the monogram on their band pajamas.

Parquet Courts (that's "Par-kay" to you, American dog) make tightly coiled New York rock, yes, but in a way that's no mere echo of tightly-coiled-New-York-rocks past. To wit:
LISTEN:

Parquet Courts - "Stoned and Starving"
• • •
Portland group Themes is based around the married duo of Jacy McIntosh and Kelsey Crawford, but their great new album Loveweapons is evidence of the flexibility of both their sound and their ever-evolving lineup, which, in their words, is based around the idea that "we all want to see our friends succeed."
LISTEN:

Themes - "Get By"

Plus the usual rigamarole of Up & Coming shows.
