Scott & Charlene’s Wedding are a Melbourne band who play a slackery kind of indie rock. They wear it so naturally that it seems like they might have just tumbled straight out of bed and onto the stage, the loose riffs just pouring off the fingers. It’s got a lovely feel to it. Delivered is out on the Fire label.

This absurdly-named Australian band are back with this short four song EP of dishevelled, shambling pop punk. The opening title track is a perky little thing like the Velvet Underground playing on borrowed instruments fronted by Joe Mangel. They are quite the rock and roll combo what with their wah-wah guitar but they know their way round a ramshackle tunes as ‘Airport' proves making them come across as a kind of Antipodean Replacements.
The ghost of the Saints is never far away either and the press release gets it right when it uses the phrase ‘ragged charm’. The songs a lovely and tuneful but the band play them like a bunch of scratty ragbags. This is perfectly exemplified on the closing cover of Elton John’s ‘Bennie and the Jets’ which sounds like the band had drunkenly decided to play it without bothering to learn it properly first.
This sums them up though - they just don’t care but they have enough pop chops up their sleeves to get away with their just-out-of-bed performances.
