"Basin/Lucky Charms" from Fawn Spots/Scott & Charlene's Wedding

I've championed UK noise rockers Fawn Spots several times over the last couple of years, and I am very happy with the new LP from Aussie/NYC's Scott & Charlene's Wedding (review here).  So I was very happy to hear that the two bands were celebrating their pairing for UK shows this August with the release of a split 7", Basin/Lucky Charms.  The record is released by London label Critical Heights, who have signed Fawn Spots and formerly included Scott & Charlene's Wedding on their roster.  Fawn Spots contribution is a new track that showcases their Husker Du brand of blasting rock.  S&CW's offering has that band's classic, relaxed storytelling vibe.  There is a bit of Pavement, a bit of Lou Reed and a bit of The Lemonheads.  If you can't attend the shows, at least you can get a vinyl or digital artifact.

By the way, for UK fans the remaining shows are:
9 August: Head of Steam, Newcastle
10 August: Rook & Gaskill, York
12 August: The Jackalope, Manchester
15 August: The Hairy Dog, Derby
