Parquet Courts seem ready to make a crossover bid: the Brooklyn-by-way-of-Denton quartet hired mega-producer Danger Mousethe man who turned the Black Keys into radio bait and CeeLo Green into a pop starand recorded thirteen of their hookiest songs ever. But the resulting album, Wide Awake! (Rough Trade, May 18), doesnt soften many of the bands edges. Danger Mouse bakes in his sonic trademarksstringy synths, spaghetti western guitar, and plenty of funkbut this is still a Parquet Courts record. Songs like Total Football have hip-moving basslines but dont sacrifice the bands snotty aggression or decidedly non-pop lyrics: Collectivism and autonomy are not mutually exclusive . . . F Tom Brady.Wide Awake! brings to mind another exclamation-mark album, the Clashs Sandinista!, which also used punk energy to explore a broad sonic palette. Parquet Courts, like the Clash before them, eschew genre purity to play with arrangements that would thrive both on dance floors and in mosh pits. In that sense, Wide Awake! isnt a crossover, its an expansion.
