"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." – RAZORCAKE

"It's been tough to describe this band, which speaks highly for any group. This three-piece unit from Carbondale, IL play super-tight punk rock, but to say that already puts them in a corner from which they quickly move beyond. They are defined by slinky yet powerful riffs, precise drumming, the ability to play any time signature without sounding overly-technical or "mathy." Terrific hooks are born from all three members often singing together and harmonizing well, but it's hardly pop music. Sometimes I think "Man or Astroman" but it defies the surf genre too. Witness for yourself!" - US
