Parlor are a paradox. Parlor play with spastic energy, but are stop-on-a-dime tight. Parlor incorporate the tropes of surf and ‘60s garage into their sound, but come off totally original. Parlor make technical parts sound simple. Parlor make weird song structures come off as pop hits. Parlor’s record turns itself over and when it starts again, the songs sound new.
