Here's another one from Rebecca Peake, a woman I admire greatly. 'Idiot Street' is more minimalistic in its production than some of her other tracks, but no less beautiful. A nice little piano-backed ballad takes up half the track before the drums come in and the universe of sound expands. The vocals are yearning, half ethereal, half grounded to reality. From a slow start, this number builds and builds into something bursting at the seams with passion and a synth-rock sensibility that clicks immediately. It's a masterpiece!
