Podcast Episode #42: World Cup Preview w/ Parquet Courts

Austin Brown of Parquet Courts performs at the Basement East in Nashville June 3, 2018

IT'S TIME FOR THE WORLD CUP!!!!

To get ready, we talked with Parquet Courts about who to look out for in Russia this summer, why they have a song on their new record titled, "Total Football," and Marouane Fellaini—the Greatest of All Time. If you're a fan of Parquet Courts or excited about Russia '18, this episode is for you.

The discussion was led by Austin Brown, the band's resident soccer aficionado. While Austin sings, plays guitar, and writes songs, he's also a dedicated Manchester United fan and box-to-box midfielder on the PlayStation 4 with his avatar Sleepy Brown.

We recorded this out on the back porch of the Basement East, the Nashville stop on the band's current tour in support of their new album Wide Awake!, which is one of the best PC records yet.
