Recorded during winter of 2011 with Martin Horn of Digital Bird Studios, the album makes good on the aesthetic its name promises. Tracks expand and contract, with epically inclined, organ-driven builders like “Married On A Sunday” and stay-at-home soul chops like those showcased on “Amaze-Me-Jane.”

Ultimately, Kook Soul is as much a testament to the band’s knowledge of the past as it is the strength of its vision. A vision that is realized as Parlovr ceases to be a band worth watching, transformed instead into one that must be followed.
