Debates may rage (well, that's possibly a slight exaggeration) over whether Scott & Charlene's Wedding is a genius band name or a bloody awful one, but opinion must be less split about the music. Craig Dermody's indiepop band release their album 'Any Port In A Storm' this week and the excellent 'Lesbian Wife' recalls the output of the legendary Flying Nun record label.

Kitten Pyramid - Uh Oh
There's a lot to take in on this debut single from Kitten Pyramid. 'Uh Oh' certainly doesn't sound like a band's opening salvo, it's a mixture of prog, indie, alt-rock, punk, pop and plenty of other things too. The Derby-based collective have ideas coming out of their ears and they're not afraid to use them. If they continue like this then critical acclaim is surely lying in wait.

OBLIGATORY RECORD OF THE WEEK
Yuck - Rebirth
A few people may have been thinking that the departure of frontman Daniel Blumberg to concentrate on his solo career spelt the end for the band. Far from it. The aptly-titled 'Rebirth' finds Yuck in better form than ever. Gone are the lengthy grunge-influenced tracks, and in comes one of the finest shoegaze tracks you'll hear all year. Could this mark a new chapter for the band? If they're capable of producing more where this came from then the future is looking brighter than ever for them. A truly glorious song.
