Standard Fare are back. With a cracking debut album! I'm an old indie softy really & will always cherish honest, earthy guitar pop like this. 'The Noyelle Beat' occasionally sounds like a stripped back, less technical Los Campesinos without the arch studious pretention & slapability. But then I'd say their heart is pretty old skool.

Standard Fare are back. With a cracking debut album! I'm an old indie softy really & will always cherish honest, earthy guitar pop like this. 'The Noyelle Beat' occasionally sounds like a stripped back, less technical Los Campesinos without the arch studious pretention & slapability. But then I'd say their heart is pretty old skool. And heart & spirit is what this 3 piece have in spades. They kick out a really rattly, janglesome & passionate racket and I have to say Emma Kupa's vocals are a major drawing point for me, they're so pure & slightly wonky & flat you can't help but fall in love. Brett thought she was a man but her tomboy-esque wail ain't nothing as deep as that lass from Beach House!! There's spots of early Delgados in there but they sound decidedly Northern English and pretty timeless at that. The single 'Fifteen' is still sounding crispy fresh, frozen in time from 1991's twee underground but now with scuffed DMs and bruised knees, giving off an aroma of sneaky cigarettes & cheap cider. To load a debut with this many great songs is criminal. Warmly recorded to capture the modest dynamics of a 3 piece, there is plenty of variation here but the distinctive stamp of Standard Fare is woven strongly throughout. Just the ticket (groan!!!)
