pre-order Home Cinema by Emma Kupa

Emma Kupa, former Standard Fare front woman, releases her first solo material on wiaiwya in March 2015.

Home Cinema is a mini album; six songs of spritely jangle-folk-indie-country, about family, death, drink problems, holocaust survivors and communism.
Home Cinema is a succinct, catchy and honest record; it feels like Emma is entrusting you with her closest family secrets, but - damn her - she’s putting them to a tune so infectious there’s nothing you can do to keep them to yourself. Home Cinema features six earworms about members of Emma’s family:

“Katie was my grandmothers cousin who I struck up a friendship with and visited before she died; she had very blue eyes. Charlie was my grandad and a handsome Jewish communist. ‘There Will Come A Day’ is about my mum; she is the serious looking twin on the record’s cover. Her mother (on the far left) died when she was 5.”

BrooklynVegan says - "the A-side, "Loyal Oppostion," is jazzy with lush strings (shades of early Everything but the Girl), and the B-side, "Distracted," is bouncy indiepop. Jenny, glad to have you back."

pre-ordering pizza

hi - you can pre order the new album from Stanley Brinks & Freschard (including an immediate download of the new single "If You Have Time") here:

Having already released 2 of the best albums of 2014 (Gin on Fika Recordings, and Boom Biddy Boom on wiaiwya) STANLEY BRINKS & FRESCHARD are releasing PIZZA ESPRESSO - an album of duets, and a collaboration between both labels – at the end of August.

PIZZA ESPRESSO is an album of love songs about drinking and drinking songs about love. Picture Emmylou and Gram relocated to Berlin with a guitar, a pennywhistle and a washboard and writing ten gorgeous duets to be sung on lazy summer evenings.

new single from the Leaf Library out on Saturday 7th June

and Gideon Coe has been playing it to death on BBC Six Music - it's a lovely slab of Krauty jangle pop, but don't take my word for it:
