Peak Twins / Scott & Charlene's Wedding

Night People has always had an ear for interesting sounds coming from Down Under, which is pretty impressive for a label located smack dab in the middle of America's corn bucket. On this latest split they pair Melbourne bands Peak Twins and the oddly named but entrancing Scott and Charlene's Wedding. The former drift along on a dreamy cloud of strums and down tempo melancholy. The band is at their best when they keep things a bit brighter as on the closer "Your Love." It’s all well and good but fairly eclipsed by the happenings on the second side. On the flip, Scott and Charlene's Wedding (pictured) brings some sunny, Kiwi-style jangle that recalls their compatriots The Twerps in a very good way. Chiming guitars, the soft fizz of feedback and a wistful vocal style are the earmarks that lump them nicely with that crew and frankly a few other members of the Underground People's stable. The band's first album is worth a check as well, but this EP is a fun place to start. Their whole side speaks well for future endeavors and though they're now residing stateside they'll always bring that Aussie charm with them. Pick it up from Night People soon as the Australian counterpart on Bedroom Suck is already sold out and this looks to go as well.

Ha well I'm not sure if that makes it any less odd, but it certainly explains the reference. Now excuse me while I make the motions to start my band Zach and Kelly's Prom.
