Part Time’s upcoming double LP, Virgo’s Maze, due May 19 on Burger Records, contains everything but the kitchen sink, as it embodies David Loca’s home recordings and various inky sounds over the last five years.
Loca is the prime performer in Part Time, although five songs were aided by a few of his friends on drum and bass.
Much of the sound of Part Time’s newest single, “Fallin’ 4 U,” is lo-fi noise and snippets of voices and sound bites, although the first half of the song could count as enough conventional Britpop for some.
Most of Virgo’s Maze was recorded on reel to reel, tape machine or USB mixer, and according to a press release, it’s the first album in which Loca has complete control.
Listen to “Fallin’ 4 U” on Soundcloud. And check out the ending; it seems to fondly reminisce over Saturday-morning cartoon bits, a la “Looney Toons.”
