8/10 Mike Staff review, 24 October 2013

Group Rhoda’s last full-length ‘Out of Time - Out Of Touch’ was a genuinely intriguing bit of minimal synthpop, and now Mara Barenbaum (as she’s known to her mum) has come up with another album of slinky skeletal pop nuggets for our enjoyment. Her sound is a stripped back one which falls somewhere between The xx, Laurel Halo and Peaking Lights; lots of negative space, plaintive vocals and precise synthetic textures lending it a cold futurism.

On ‘Space Race’ she goes extra minimal, with a Laurie Anderson-esque vocal line over rumbling cosmic synth ambience which has more in common with the aforementioned Halo - a sparse yet tactile, alien yet intimate aesthetic. When the beats are involved she often drifts into a weird spaced out tropical dub territory which is quite affecting, dusty ghost transmissions from Hawaii via Nico’s Chelsea and the nocturnal neon glare of the Californian highway. Once again Ms Rhoda impresses.
