RIYL: John Maus, Ariel Pink, Drugdealer

Label: Tough Love Records

Part Time has dipped his toes into many record labels water and now has landed at Tough Love with his newest album Spell #6, this being the 6th studio album under the moniker. Part Time is a master at laying down chill lo-fi sounds while creating a pleasant landscape of colors and sounds in his work. This album is no different, with the single doing just that. ‘I Can Treat You Better’ reminds me of sitting in my bedroom with my headphones on and looking out at a bright Autumn day. There are definite influences of 80’s and 90’s synth pop and new wave such as Simple Minds but not so much borrowing but adding and expanding on the sound. Something to consider, “[t]hough it is Loca’s project, Spell #6 sees him joined by a consistent supporting cast of fellow writers and performers who add a poise and deftness to his vision, most notably Ariel Pink, who makes a guest appearance on lead single, ‘I Can Treat You Better’.”
