Ricky the Ghost

Meet your new buddy, Ricky the Ghost. Dude is a bit more rogue than Casper the Friendly Ghost, and he’s the star of the new Parquet Courts video for “You’ve Got Me Wonderin’ Now,” a punk-tinged number chockfull of plucky riffage, propulsive drumming and singer Andrew Savage’s infectious, shouty vocals. And there’s some Flutophone action!

This orange little ghoul is also the face of the band’s new EP, Tally All The Things That You Broke, which recently dropped via What’s Your Rupture? What these Brooklyn-based garage punkers do best is deliver a truly solid rock tune amongst their synth-happy peers. Prepare yourself to sing along as you embrace some unabashed pogoing or everyday head bang. “You’ve Got Me Wonderin’ Now” is hands down one of 2013’s standout singles.
