The first thing that strikes you about Part 8 is what a departure its second track is. "Remembering Ken" is a simple piano and percussion vehicle for the melancholy guest vocals of Ade Omotayo, who appears on the new Kindness record and was a backing singer for Amy Winehouse. It's not one of my favourite moments from 2014's Parts EPs, but it's an elegantly realised stylistic curveball nonetheless.
More familiar sounds await elsewhere, from the stuttering, serrated synth pop of "The Wrong Place," to "Ticket"'s submerged techno clatter. "Her Face" ends things on a wonky but pretty note, with a throbbing rhythmic spine overlain with cascading, tinkling melodies. The EP achieves what it set out to do with characteristic effortlessness.
