Scott & Charlene's Wedding - Delivered EP

On Fridays we here an WYMA world headquarters like our indie rock loud, scrappy, and enthusiastic.  You know, the prefect soundtrack for Friday activities such as a few minutes of editing, a few minutes of glancing at the mail, a few minutes depositing the bribes from all the big labels, and a couple of hours of cleaning up empties and pizza boxes.  Now, we don't mean to suggest the the Delivered EP by Scott & Charlene's Wedding is only good for such Fridays, because it works very well driving, at backyard keggers, and working out.  Trust me, I'm a professional and have played it in all those situations.  But it is one of many perfect times for this EP.

The Delivered EP bridges the gap between the band's well-received Any Port In A Storm LP from a couple of years ago and the follow up album set for release this fall, and displays the first-take immediacy that is the essential element of good garage rock.  The title track, which will be on the upcoming album, is a hard and jagged ode to happy substances with Craig Dermody's shouted vocals giving the tune a sense of urgency.  The following tunes continue the garage rock vein with a bit more jangle.  The closer is a turn-it-up-to-11 cover of Elton's "Bennie and the Jets".  Good stuff, and you can stream the entire EP at the Bandcamp link below.
