Group Rhoda
Out Of Time, Out Of Touch
Night School Records to release debut album 3rd September 2012
 
 “…. it becomes, for the short time it appears, the most beautiful thing in the world.” 20Jazzfunkgreats 

“minimal, deceptively simple, rather dark and moody…. outstanding and as haunting” Spirit of Eden


What began with a desire to learn the machinations of pop music and the environment in which it is produced, has culminated in this, Group Rhoda’s (aka San Franciscan, Mara Barenbaum) debut album, Out Of Time, Out of Touch – a journey into sublime pop music. 
 
With grounding in the minimal and the post-industrial landscape, Group Rhoda take classic west coast psychedelia, Suicide's mechanical simplicity, and the industrial rhythms of Throbbing Gristle through surprising detours. Tropical rhythms, dubbed-out bass, hypnotic Wurlitzer flourishes and, Barrenbaum’s distinctive, plaintive vocal drench this debut with a a technicolour, sun-blanched imagination. 
 
Barenbaum's voice evokes a dislocation from reality – a loneliness. 'Virtual Dancer' rides a bass-heavy wave to comment on the fleeting nature of human contact in the modern age, while 'At The Dark' is steeped in hypnotic pyschedelia. 'Hi Rise' continues the theme of isolation on the back of metallic tropical rhythm pattern. 'Fire' closes the album with a pulsing, linearity recalling Autobahn era Kraftwerk - a single riff repeating and modulating around Barenbaum's synthesis.
