Product Description

The impeccably named Scott & Charlene s Wedding are back with not so much a brand new album, as a generation's glimpse of love, home-sickness, basketball, alienation, rock and roll and all things that matter to an expatriate Aussie stranded in New York, to be released on Fire Records in July. Any Port In A Storm is fated to become your essential backdrop to the summer of 2013. The brainchild of the amiable and unashamedly charismatic Craig Dermody, Scott & Charlene s Wedding offer a sonically charged take on the Lemonheads ramshackle melodicism and Pavement s lo-fi drawl. Following the success of Critical Heights' recent reissues of the band s debut album Para Vista Social Club and the follow-up EP Two Weeks, the new album sees their first new recordings for over two years capturing Dermody at a pivotal time in his life. He has further developed his gloriously ragged anthems to reach new heights of nonchalant perfection. Having uprooted from Melbourne, Australia to New York, New York, the Big Apple has replaced Melbourne as inspiration his latest trials and tribulations. His heart-on-sleeve lyrics reveal tales of everyday Dermody life, somehow more absurdly unhinged, humorous and poignant than the lives of his peers. All coming from a man with a clear mission to update the rock n roll template beyond his inspirations and influences as Scott & Charlene's Wedding effortlessly sprawl across the generations, linking the vintage swagger of the Velvets to the off-kilter pop perfection of the Only Ones by way of the Stooges and Television. The eleven electrifying tracks taking us on an intimate journey with Craig Dermody and his daily struggles, like a peak in to his personal diary. He documents his move from Melbourne to New York to follow a girl. Fakin NYC sees him adjusting to life in a new city, having to find a new job and feeling out of place as a security guard for a trendy bar. Lesbian Wife sees him being caught in the middle of the biggest storm ever to have hit NYC and feeling homesick for Australia. The Scott & Charlene bandwagon has already clicked into gear, with acclaim and plaudits from Pitchfork, Spin and The Quietus as well as being featured in articles in the Guardian and Independent, with national radio support with plays on BBC 6Music from the likes of Steve Lamacq and Tom Ravenscroft. Scott & Charlene s Wedding will embark on their first ever European tour, which will stretch for two months throughout July and August. So catch them whilst they're still a cult band... "... the execution for his frustration is point perfect-- his sleepily conversational vocals fold into his sunny, jangling guitars seamlessly" Pitchfork // "Scott & Charlene s Wedding pull off the trick of playing every song like it s the first time." The Quietus // Jangle Pop with a Middle Finger Fully Extended. The Village Voice //

4.0 out of 5 stars angular & urgent indie slacker pop/rock 14 Sept. 2013
By Charlie Quaker - Published on
Format: Vinyl
2nd album from New York City via Melbourne, Australia band--angular & urgent indie slacker
pop/rock with trilling, echoic guitars snapping over punky Dylan-infected talk/sing vocals. There's
a sleazy-core staccato-drone jangle in the driving rhythms that adds a slightly lo-fi, garagey
honesty to the music. The songs have a raw, immediate feel, but still retain a captivatingly
hypnotic flow of melody. Former member of Spider Vomit. Recalls bands like the Television
Personalities, Pavement, Nikki Sudden, Josef K, Velvet Underground, the Walkmen, the Chills,
the Feelies. Good stuff!!
