An often-overlooked staple of the Washington D.C. scene, EDSEL shared the sound and philosophy of one of the world’s most prolific and influential regions without losing sight of their own unique vision. Packaged in a handsome dye-cut full-color sleeve designed by band member and graphic artist Steve Raskin, these two songs put forth a huge step toward that concept while refusing to obscure the environment that fostered them. (Also available as part of Jade Tree’s retrospective CD, The First Five Years (JT1050)
