    On its sixth full-length, Constant Future, the New York art-punk trio cranks up the keyboard-both as an instrument and as a compositional tool-and forges a marginally fresh approach to its harsh yet melodic methodology.

    Constant Future is a solid effort from a talented and original band making unique rock 'n' roll quite unlike anything else out there at the moment.

    Parts & Labor still do plenty of rocking out, but their tight compositions save them from overindulgence.
  4. Maybe Constant Future is the record to finally thrust this deserving outfit over the edge. Even if it isn't, it's still another damn good addition to a wickedly unheralded, but highly effective, library.

    Constant Future is another fine rock record from a band that gets harder to ignore with each release, even when the album's titular problem is exactly what keeps them flying under the radar.

    There's very little to complain about in Constant Future, apart from the fact that it's no great step forward from their previous material.

    Their fizzy keyboards and Bob Mould-y vocals remain intact, but essentially this is conventional indie-rock.
