Parquet Courts and their debut album, Light Up Gold (What’s Your Rupture?), have been on a lot of people’s lips lately. The band burst on the scene from relative obscurity to become one of the most exciting and talked-about rock bands making music today, with features inRolling Stone, Pitchfork, SPIN, Under The Radar, The Village Voice, NY Postand more. That’s not normal, it’s an aberration, and only happens when the planets align and the tunes are right. It’s a strange series of events for any band to go through, and not everyone is lucky enough to have an accomplished documentarian like Andy Capper along for the ride to capture a singular three-week period during the height of it all. Capper’s work includes documentary films such as The Vice Guide To Liberia, Swansea Love Story, Lil Bub & Friendz, REINCARNATED, and music videos for A$AP Rocky, Vybz Kartel, Black Lips, and Snoop Lion. His approach to filmmaking is getting as intimate with the subject matter as possible and letting them be the stars of the piece.


“When bassist Sean Yeaton left his job and the safety of a desk job for the wild life of a performing minstrel, I decided to get a camera and follow him on the first three weeks of his new life,” says Capper. “We went from Mexico to Texas and London in a very short time period for the amount of great moments we had together. I love Sean and his band – Austin, Andrew and Max – and I hope that this is reflected in this short film that we made together.”“Light Up Gold Road Trip” premiered today on Noisey.
