Part / Human
"Part/Human, a new San Francisco trio led by Margaret Rhodes, is a synth-heavy post-punk act, but instead of reaching back towards the '70s and '80s (Oppenheimer Analysis, The Units, Tuxedomoon) their touchpoints are firmly in the '90s (Curve, Lush, Primal Scream). The result is a lovely little slice of electronic post-punk that feels familiar but noticeably different from their contemporaries.
Throughout the EP, a driving, syncopated drum machine propels forward underneath soaring, phased-out guitars, while Rhodes' voice provides melodic accompaniment. It reaches its zenith in the beautiful technicolor pop of "Stay Away," which uses Rhodes' voice to best effect and features the EP's most affecting rhythms, pairing Joy Division-derived basslines with jangly guitars." - Chris Zaldua, SF Weekly
