[CELEBU-CLASH] Justin Moyer likes to push buttons. As a member of Dischord Records footnotes Antelope, El Guapo and Supersystemthe latter being rather criminally underrated, by the way—the D.C.-based musician and songwriter needled listeners with worldly avant-rock at once oddly funky and a bit obnoxious. In the early 2000s, Moyer kicked things up a notch with (originally named) Edie Sedgwick, a two-man performance art project in which he "impersonated" the late Warhol starlet by dressing in drag and singing abrasive electroclash songs about various celebrities. It was annoying and, like much of Moyer's output, simultaneously fascinating. In the last few years, Moyer has gotten more serious. He no longer dresses in drag, and now performs with an actual band. The songs on We Wear White, the first released under the tweaked name ED Sedgwick, are hookier and propelled by more organic instrumentation, but it remains raw, twitchy and, yes, a bit grating. But that's all part of the charm.
