8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 15 November 2012
Edie Sedgwick is the long-running solo outlet of Justin Moyer, who has also been variously involved in El Guapo, Supersystem, Antelope and SPRCSS over the years. Now, however, he finds himself without another band and so he has renamed himself ED Sedgwick, recruited himself a band and made his fullest-sounding album yet for Dischord.It’s fun, slick garage pop not a millions miles away from what Mikal Cronin is doing, but with a few gospelly touches and the occasional kind of minimal glam stomp that reminds me of U.S. Girls a little bit. In places it even reminds me of Bikini Kill or something, just totally loose, trebly, sing-song pop with jagged, scratchy guitar tones, fun harmonies and boy/girl call and response vocals. In places it does get a little bit wacky, and there’s a strange song that seems to recall ‘Walk Like An Egyptian’, but overall this is a lively and fun little collection.
