New music from Edgar Jr.

January 20, 2011

Homemade is the first CD from local acoustic musician Edgar Jr. You may have seen Edgar playing the standard coffeehouse gigs around town – Stardust, Natura, and the like – and you probably noticed that he’s a little … different from your typical earnest coffeehouse fare. (Like, sure, you’ve seen a dude play a Radiohead song, but have you seen one play “Creep” … on a ukulele?) Homemade does a pretty good job of capturing his vibe, and the title is a pretty good descriptor: imagine if Jack Johnson had a pretty great singing voice, but was inspired by Sentridoh (or, maybe, the other way around), and you’d be getting close. It probably won’t convert haters of mellow acousti-jams to the cause, but it’s certainly indicative of a local artist worth paying attention to.

Homemade is available now as a download for $8 via Bandcamp, and he’s also hand-making a (very) limited edition of 50 CDs; they’re $12, and can be purchased on his Bandcamp page as well as at his shows (his next Orlando show is Feb. 9 at Tent City.)
