Album Notes - Parlor Mob - Dark Hour

October 15, 2019

The more I listen to this album, the more my mind arrives at the same thought: a more edgy Portugal. The Man. Dark Hour is Parlor Mob's fourth LP, and while previous releases were more analogous to Led Zeppelin (and most notably present here on "House of Cards"), the New Jersey rockers instead seem to have taken notes from their contemporary countrymen who blew up big time thanks to "Feel it Still." While there is certainly nothing on Dark Hour that will cut through the machinations of pop culture the way that 2017 hit did, many of the elements that have made the Alaskan hipsters so enjoyable over the years are hard at work here.
