Parquet Courts is a band from New York City. Members include Andrew Savage (vocals, guitar), Austin Brown (vocals, guitar), Sean Yeaton (bass), and Max Savage (drums). Human Performance is their fifth studio release.

Human Performance is a vastly entertaining album, and after repeated listens, I eventually succumbed to its spell and realized that this is easily one the of the most surprising and important records to be released this year. It's exceptional songwriting from a band I never cared much for, showing me up with well-crafted songs that are engaging, creative, and full of confidence. It's without a doubt Parquet Courts' best effort to date. I would describe the music a blend of alternative rock and post-punk, similar to bands like Ought and Protomartyr. Standout tracks include "Dust," Outside,"One Man, No City," Berlin Got Blurry" and "Pathos Prairie." Highly recommended.
