Boomkat product review for:

standard fare - The Noyelle Beat

This Sheffield trio took their band-name from a sign spotted on a bus, but it's the overtones of wry self-deprecation in Standard Fare that raise a chuckle. The band might be said to fit alongside fellow indie romanticists like Slow Club (also from Sheffield) and Los Campesinos. Vocal duties are shared between Emma Kupa and Danny How, resulting in a kind of super fey, boy-girl equivalent to the first/second person exchanges messrs Doherty and Barat had on 'Can't Stand Me Now'. The album was recorded in a mere six days, retaining a classic, artful sloppiness to its conception that only goes to underscore the lively, ever so slightly shambolic performances. The songs tend to take the form of charming, angsty relationship dramas, ranging from arch soppiness (or perhaps that should be soppy archness) of 'Philadelphia's "Global warming is getting me down / It's making the sea between us wider and deeper" to the ever so slightly seedy 'Fifteen', which raises an eyebrow or two with its tales of underage attraction, potentially sounding 'a bit Polanski', but then these guys are probably about twelve years old themselves anyway.
