Parquet Courts singer/guitarist A. Savage is set to release his debut solo LP, Thawing Dawn, this Friday, but now just a few days ahead of its release he has shared another new song. “Ladies From Houston” is the fourth track released prior to the full album release of Thawing Dawn. The track is 7 minutes of slowed down guitar-driven rambling, and it’s great.
A. Savage had this to say about the song:
“I wrote “Ladies From Houston” after going to a small gathering of friends. We were at the house of our friend’s father, who had just died, and he had just finished selling off most of his dad’s possessions so he could sell the house. Some stuff we broke. But a collection of erotica and photographs remained, and we all began sorting through it. This investigation set off a string of stories that went on late into the night. We all learned something about everyone else. The words are based on the stories told that night.”
Thawing Dawn is out this Friday, the 13th, via Dull Tools. You can pre-order it now.
