geoff gordon releases Sex and the City - digital LP
March 06, 2020

"Sex and the city is a combination that seems great but often isn’t. This is what I’ve come to learn from the new record from geoff gordon, Sex and the City, and discussions with my girlfriend about the show its named after that I’ve never actually watched. Thankfully I’ve gleaned enough to know that we can’t stay Samanthas forever, growing out of our promiscuous ways can be hell, and the entire premise of living in New York City and caring more about who you’re going to sleep with instead of…

The Parlor Announce Single, Video, and Film Premiere
April 25, 2019

During the recording of last year’s release Kiku, The Parlor wrote a few songs that felt like outliers. Kiku was a tightly wound concept album about the couple’s multiple miscarriages, but “Dream” and “Dive” were both pointing toward the other side of that grief. “Dream” held in it the realization of the couple’s tight bond, a glimpse of a blissful moment in an otherwise dark epoch. “Dive” was the fuck you. The feeling that it’s all too much. It became clear that the band was now free to write…
