opbmusic Presents: Parquet Courtsopbmusic.org

The Brooklyn-via-Texas band Parquet Courts released two albums in 2014: Sunbathing Animal in June and Content Nausea (under the name Parkay Quarts) in the fall. In a performance last summer at the Pickathon Music Festival, the band introduces one of its new songs, "What Color Is Blood." With an insistent beat and a bit of head-shaking craziness, the group plays to an intensely appreciative crowd at the Woods Stage.

Each month, opbmusic and NPR Music present another video recorded at the Woods Stage at Pickathon, each hand-picked by opbmusic to showcase some of last summer's highlights. The next premiere will run on Feb. 17.
