EDGER: Rudiments

photo: Ellen Lawson

Minneapolis rock trio EDGER don't give a fuck about sounding clean. Their EP Rudiments is a warts-and-all tribute to bands bashing out their self-penned tunes in garages and sheds. With tons of leakage, dissonants, off-key vocals and stray notes their tear through six shoe-tapping songs. Props to Mike Wisti at Albatross Studio in Minneapolis who kept the live energy intact and realized that mistakes can sound great. Power pop mixed with a DIY punk attitude.

Justin Lawson: guitar, vocals
Nate Bartley: drums
Scott Hefte: bass
