Scott & Charlene's Wedding/ Skygreen Leopards/ Palaces @ Lager 9/16
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. 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, this new record consists of entirely new material, recorded with Dermody's new band in a completely different corner of the globe to 2010's debut, Para Vista Social Club.

Having uprooted from Melbourne, Australia to New York City; the Big Apple has replaced Melbourne as inspiration for this latest set of 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 the better for taking place in the middle of downtown Manhattan, a place supposedly built on dreams and 'making it'.

Skygreen Leopards- THE SKYGREEN LEOPARDS have a new album called FAMILY CRIMES. This latest outing continues the Skygreen's tradition of skewed, sunshiney pop with lyrics that focus on the bummer parts of an eternal rock and roll summer. Donovan Quinn (NEW BUMS) and Glenn Donaldson sing and strum tales of real and imaginary lovers and friends or deliver impressionistic rants about losing love, getting high or feeling uncomfortable. They record and mix straight off a nice tape machine run by Jason Quever of PAPERCUTS (who also plays in the band sometimes along with Jasmyn Wong and Nick Marcantonio) and resist the temptation to use digital erasers, preferring to leave in the mistakes and rough edges. Whether you've been following Skygreen Leopards since the psych CD-R boom, came on board after their gnarled country opus Disciples of California, or are a newcomer to the Skygreen's jangling world: FAMILY CRIMES is the perfect introduction to their patented brand of blemished pop.
