Love Gets Lovelier Every Day on 7Inch Single

Through 12 years, three record labels, over a dozen band members, one epilepsy diagnosis, and one filthy dress. E.D. SEDGWICK has seen it all. It wasn't pretty. "'Love Gets Lovelier Every Day' is the 'Smile' of Washington, D.C. drag-punk rock," says Sedgwick, aka JUSTIN MOYER, the EL GUAPO/SUPERSYSTEM bassist who started performing under his nom de plume in 1999. "Everything conspired against this record. A collapsing record industry. Bandmates moving out of town. A couple of grand-mal seizures. Getting evicted from my studio, which was torn down by the city to build-wait for it-another studio. My decision to stop performing in a dress. The discovery of a 13th astrological sign, which means I'm no longer a Pisces, but an Aries (a f***ing Aries!). The only thing 'Love Gets Lovelier Every Day' has going for it is really good songs, and a really good band to play them." Recorded in 2009 but caught up in record label, personnel, and personal drama until now, "LGLED" is a poignant memoir of a bad season-and, with a long slate of featured performers, a departure for an reformed electroclash artist who used to make records alone in his bedroom. Dance-y ragers like "Everybody Wants Some" (featuring CHAD MOLTER and MARK CISNEROS OF MEDICATIONS on, respectively, bass and sax) appear alongside "He Composed Lines That Frighten Stanzas," a Pixies-ish rocker co-written by ex-Supersystem guitarist RAFAEL COHEN. And there is the titular, 12-plus minute pseudo-psychedelic medley equally inspired by John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" and the B-side of the Beatles' "Abbey Road." Includes a download with a full album's worth of material (available only digitally).
