Track of the Day: 'Suitcase'

More

Past TracksOh, how I wish the late BBC legend John Peel could hear this track! Sheffield's Standard Fare is an indie-pop trio with all of the goods, and enough Englishness to give the Kinks a run for their money. Frontwoman Emma Kupa is a delightful presence with a wry point of view and personality to spare. In this track she details the preparations she's made ahead of disappearing--that's right, splitsville. She's baked her jewels into a loaf of bread, apparently. And dug a bunker in her back yard. (We never hear exactly what has gone wrong.) However, two-thirds of the way through this track, Kupa counts off a guitar solo from bandmate Danny Howe that can only be described as blazing. If you've ever liked UK indie, waste not one more second. Click that link!
