So much has been made of Scott & Charlene’s Wedding and the fact that I have yet to hear them is a weight that has been bearing down on my neck for quite a while now. Luckily, first impressions are good. The track they provide here, an outtake from recent acclaimed album ‘Any Port in a Storm’, is a nice mid-paced piece of pastoral guitar pop which sits somewhere in the mid-point between Television and The Go Betweens. They have a nice spectral sound full of chiming guitars, textural organs and wavering male vocals. It’s all very assured and makes me want to hear all those songs that aren’t outtakes.
They share this EP with York’s Fawn Spots, who make a lot more sense on record than when I recently saw them at the YO1 festival where my ears were pummeled by glorious if unrelenting feedback and little else. They sound, to me, very much like early Lemonheads, their music has a hardcore edge but they write tuneful songs that emerge fully formed out of the murk. The vocals have a shouty aggressive quality without being too boisterous. Also think Husker Du, No Age. It’s all good stuff and I’m flippin’ fuming that I’m playing football tomorrow night and can’t attend their exciting looking show in York tomorrow night. Sometimes I wish there were two of me.
