Parquet Courts – Performing Human (Released 19th August)

£8.99 – 12″ EP

 As Parquet Courts’ songwriter Andrew Savage said earlier this year to NPR Music,

“The catalyst of the s o n g ‘H u m a n P e r f o r m a n c e’ [reflects] m y o w n fla w e d p e r f o r m a n c e o f h u m a nit y , a n d h o w it affects those around me.”

 The ‘Performing Human’ 12” features an alternate take of ‘Human Performance’ as well as remixes of the song by Eaters and Chris Pickering from Future Punx.

 The video for ‘Human Performance’ was conceived, directed and puppeteered by renowned English visual artist (and Turner Prize nominee) Phil Collins. In a masterwork of discomfort, Collins utilizes the tools of the storied school of German puppeteering to create a video that certainly feeds into the narrative of the song.

 Only available to independent retailers. Limited to 200 copies for the UK and Eire.
