“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”, from their forthcoming new album Wahzu Wahzu.” –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
