"Sunbathing Animals," Parquet Courts
Release date: June 3
Why we love it: This little post-rock and punk gem is hard and unpolished, with impeccable pacing and a metric ton of heart. The band's rapid rise has allowed in humor and sarcasm about themselves and about others. They used the short years since their 2011 debut to better master their instruments.
