The Sedgwicks - "Up Till Now" 7"

The Sedgwicks – “Up Till Now” 7”
Susstones, 1990
Acquired: Love Garden Shotgun Room, Used, 2007
Price: $.25
Here is some college rock from the halcyon days before grunge came along and made everything crunchy. This Minneapolis quartet has a bit of a sedated vibe but the hooks are solid and the tunes are…also solid. The b-side has a little more pop/a little more jangle but is just as much a delight as side A. The Sedgwicks from Minneapolis (not to be confused with the Sedgwicks from England, who also played jangly pop music) appear to have released only one seven-inch. Alas, what a waste, for the music herein is super good! I'm sure you all know by now the soft spot I have for bands who, while not spectacular, were solid and contributed a thimbleful of joy to the world of music.
