“We carry grief around with us, often to unlikely places. We try at times to let it go, to fling our grief from great heights or hope it’s carried off by time -an offering to the flowing waters of the hills. But ultimately we find ourselves steeping in it, drowning in it, and ideally cleansed by it in a baptism of intentional release. Allowing ourselves to stop fighting forces us to experience things that, as humans, we often try desperately to avoid. Allowing ourselves to dance in glowing sunlight empowers us to reclaim our spirit. And we are transported to a deeper place of understanding of one’s self and of the human experience as we know it. “Soon” is an expression of painful hope and illuminated heart.” –Northern Transmissions

The Surgeon’s Knife is the album’s sparkling, mirror-ball centerpiece: with its clipped acoustic groove, O’Connor’s luminous coo, and a 4/4 beat that blurs the line between a dusty-boot stomp and bass-bin thump, the song is a dream-sequence rendering of the Daft Punk MTV Unplugged special that never happened in 2001.” –Pitchfork.

Wahzu Wahzu  manages to achieve what most albums can’t these days, which is an actual opus of work that tells a story – twelve tracks that flow in and out of one another, all distinct yet seamlessly familial and integral. These days full-lengths tend to feel necessarily disaggregated in the era of the single, and the music industry’s compulsive obsession with the track-by-track release. Wahzu Wahzu defies this convention entirely…” –AudioFemme

“The Parlor excel at the dreamier, more psychedelic side of indie rock and indie folk… Band masterminds Eric Krans and Jen O’Connor create a gentle, otherworldly sound on “Wishes in the Sheets.” ” –PopMatters

“Disco isn’t dead. She’s just let her perm fall, braided flowers into her hair, and hitched a ride north to the countryside, adopting a Mother Earth persona that still has a few sequins on her dress.” –ThrdCoast
