8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 27 January 2011

I've got a bit of a soft spot for Standard Fare, especially Emma Kupa's wild vocal style. I reckon they've released some pretty decent singles and they are a treat to observe live, very frenzied and excitable indie pop. Think Pains Of being Pure At Heart if they had a little more punk rock spirit. On this split with kindred spirits and US tour buddies One happy Island they deliver a couple of slices of scuzzy indie pop that are on a par with anything they've done before. 'Kudzu Girlfriend' is particularly good. In fact I think it may be a One Happy Island cover, though it sounds very much like Standard Fair to me. One Happy Island take on Standard Fare's 'Night With A friend' which they do a nice job off even though they've applied a bunch of twee licks to it, I like the kazoo part though. Cheeky. 'China Fair' is an original and very likable indie pop song that sort of reminds me of The Sisterhood Of The Convoluted Thinkers. Its got some fantastic melodic breakdowns in there. This one's on orange vinyl.
