E.D. Sedgwick used to be known as ‘Edie Sedgwick’ back in the day. It was Justin Moyer’s crossdressing electro side project: a shouty mess of celebrity takedowns with song titles such as “Martin Sheen.” It was hard to define, but harder still to ignore.
Seven years later, Edie is now “E.D.” and Justin Moyers is now a journalist at The Washington Post. Thankfully, he didn’t kill the project, and what we have now is a much more guitar-driven sound backed with vocals that are one part Primal Scream and one part Patti Smith. Be sure to cop the record when it comes out Tuesday on Dischord Records over on their website.
