Premiere: Part Time’s Lo-fi Synth-Pop ‘Merchandise’

+

“The song ‘Merchandise’ is just a feeling about walking in the financial or shopping district of your city; busy people, money, consuming consumers, window shoppers, bags, facades,” David Loca, aka Part Time, explains of the track from his new cassette H.F.M., out today via Plastic Response Records.

Like most of the songs here, it’s a synth-pop track imbued with warmth amid the lo-fi 4-track and Casio keys trappings, that he recorded years ago, and is releasing for the first time on this collection. Part Time is in the midst of a U.S. tour that brings him to Glasslands on 9/4 and Cake Shop on 9/5.
