Parquet Courts - Captive Of The Sun ft. Bun B b/w Chopped Not Slopped Remix (12")


Limited to 550 copies.

When Parquet Courts made their second television appearance supporting 2016’s brilliant Human Performance LP, they were joined on Late Night with Stephen Colbert by a very special surprise guest, rapper Bun B (of UGK), who added a verse to the album’s percussive, lyrically-dense “Captive of the Sun.”

What fans of both artists may not know, is that Bun B, a huge fan of Parquet Courts (whose Austin Brown, a Houston rap acolyte, is himself a Bun B & UGK superfan), already had a studio version of the track featuring his guest verse in the works.

This brilliant meeting of the minds is now available on a club- ready 12”, with a B-side featuring the track as remixed by two more legendary Houstonians, DJ Candlestick & OG Ron C, whose “Chopped Not Slopped” edition brings plenty of purple codeine haze to the party.
