Part Time - Modern History 2LPBurger Records
Over a decade old with a discography reaching double figures across several different labels (Loglady, Mexican Summer, Buger, Lollipop, Plastic Response, Mother of Pearl, Sweaters & Pearls, Voice Academy, Sixteen Tambourines, Fuzz City, Volar, Volcom) David Loca’s work under the Part Time moniker r eally shouldn’t require any introduction. Nonetheless, David Loca crafted a lo-fi bedroom-recorded sound that is equal parts psychedelic pop, soft rock and primitive synth pop. He has cranked out many records. Mexican Summers’ What Would You Say, Burger Records’ Double-LP Virgo’s Maze, Mother of Pearls’ Return to Cherry’ and the Lollipop/Plastic Response co-release Double-LP H.F.M. are definite must listen highlights.
Joined on stage by a full band, and using them on his first studio album of newly written songs, old songs, and some written on the spot, — and Ariel Pink on one track — polished up the wobbly ’80s psych pop and soft rock sound without losing any of its inherent oddness. Spell #6 was released in late 2018 by Burger.
