Lemon Cotton Candy Sunset, the intense and intensely personal new album from erstwhile Margot And The Nuclear So & So’s frontman Richard Edwards, battled its way into existence against the longest of odds. Richard Edwards’ first solo album is the phoenix that rose from the ashes of a scrapped record, a scrapped marriage and a broken body. Less haunting than haunted, it bears a roadmap of scars, a cartography that, if traced back, leads to a much happier time.
A collaboration mixing elements of indie, punk and soul that showcased Christine’s powerful vocals and Orenda’s seasoned songwriting. The band, which includes Josh Soto, Todd Fink (The Faint) and Matt Focht (Head of Femur, Bright Eyes) draws from a wide variety of influences- from Janis Joplin, Sam Cooke, and Screamin' Jay Hawkins to Dead Kennedys and The Birthday Party. Their debut record, “You Are Here” was produced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit, Monsters of Folk) at ARC Studios in Omaha, Nebraska. Look for it in early 2018.
