pre-order Home Cinema by Emma Kupa
# On Wed 18th Feb 2015 @ 7:39am John said...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."
