A singer, songwriter, and guitarist who eventually began releasing music under his own name, Richard Edwards was best known throughout his twenties for the bittersweet indie rock of his band Margot & the Nuclear So and So's.
Named after the character Margot Tenenbaum in the Wes Anderson arthouse comedy The Royal Tenenbaums, the group, which consisted of the Indianapolis native and a rotating lineup, released its debut, The Dust of Retreat, on local label Standard Recording in 2005. It was critically well-received, and Epic would issue the label-approved follow-up Not Animal (alongside the band's preferred version, Animal!) in 2007. Edwards parted ways with Epic and relocated to Chicago for 2010's leaner Buzzard, and 2012's Rot Gut, Domestic explored more guitar-driven '90s-styled rock, also flirting with country & western influences. Margot & the Nuclear So and So's' fifth LP, 2014's Sling Shot to Heaven, was recorded in a home studio and released on their own label. Edwards then signed with Indianapolis-based Joyful Noise Recordings, which released a 2015 collection of over 50 previously unreleased songs, demos, and alternate takes from Margot titled Bride on the Boxcar: A Decade of Margot Rarities 2004-2014. In the meantime, Edwards was diagnosed with a stomach ailment that led to surgery and the cancellation of a sold-out tour. During this time, he and his wife also divorced. Addressing the aftermath of those events, his next album, Lemon Cotton Candy Sunset, would be his first under his own name. It was released in March 2017 by Joyful Noise. ~ Marcy Donelson, Andrew Leahey & MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi
