Indiepop dreamer David Speck, better known as Part Time, treating us to his 6th album already. Wittily titled Spell #6, the record expounds on the man’s strong melancholic electronic pop sounds, reminding us of Ducktails, Washed Out, and Ariel Pink--the latter of which also making an appearance on the album’s first single I Can Treat You Better.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 31 October 2018

So who in indie rock are we still allowed to like? I'm not sure how David Speck is as a man (he hangs out with Ariel Pink for instance) but his music fits perfectly into the hole carved by people who decided they don't like Wild Nothing anymore. He makes a seductive, smooth take on 80s pop which is at it's best on Hide which transports the guitar riffs of groups like the Pale Fountains way into the bedroom. Pink turns up on I Can Treat You Better which again has a lovely guitar riff amid the synths. I've turned this almost apologetic music up a bit to try to get a handle on why Pink has got involved. There's nothing in the songwriting production and lyrics to suggest anything special is going on here. Nothing you can't get from the China Crisis B sides collection. 

Everything here is 80s. Shattered Love has something of Ryan Paris' the La Dolce Vita about it, So Far Away is just China Crisis...and on and on. Not unpleasant for those of us who swoon to 80s balladry but......why?
