9/10 Mike Staff review, 21 July 2011

Wow. Here's a new fella on the scene, David Speck, who makes bedroom synthpop under the Part Time moniker. Mexican Summer have deigned fit to press his debut LP, and it doesn't take long to figure out why. This LP is full of light and breezy pop gems in total thrall to '80s synthpop and new romantic bands. Opener 'Thunderbolts Of Love' recalls early Pet Shop Boys (think West End Girls-era), and there's echoes of PSBs and even a-ha throughout the record, but with that minimalist bedroom charm too. Brian says it reminds him of Jeremy Jay and Beach Fossils and the more recent hi-fi Ariel Pink stuff...I think as far as contemporary comparisons go the closest thing I can think of is Diamond Rings. It's actually kind of reminding me of when The Cure do their breezy feel-good pop numbers in places, too. Even though everything's somewhat recycled in this day and age, the songwriting here is totally on a par with the aforementioned bands ('cept maybe the Pet Shop Boys, 'cause those guys are just too good). It's beautifully structured, warmly textured, clearly a total labour of love. Every single track is totally delightful. It always sounds like a tribute to the '80s styles and never a satire. It's making me feel great, honestly. All my anxiety is melting away. It's like the soundtrack to a non-existent John Hughes movie, tricking you into nostalgia for memories that aren't even your own. Can't recommend this highly enough. It's an edition of just 750 so I'd pounce on this before everyone else realises how good it is.


9/10 Mick Mustard Customer review,

Agreed dude...fantastic album.  Hints of Bowie on some tracks too.  Marvellous stuff
