Post-punk noise duo coming to Mil­wau­kee

Wisconsin Gazette - - Opinion - By Mike Hol­loway Staff writer

Ed Schrader’s Music Beat is an evolv­ing band that per­plexes and sur­prises fans with its hard-to-pin-down sound and high en­ergy.

What started as just Schrader bang­ing on a floor tom drum, shirt­less and scream­ing, has trans­formed into a post-punk noise duo with the ad­di­tion of Devlin Rice. The band is re­leas­ing its third al­bum Rid­dles, co-writ­ten and pro­duced by elec­tro-pop vi­sion­ary Dan Dea­con. The duo’s lat­est al­bum marks a synth-driven, 1980s pop turn for the band.

The duo are now on tour in support of the al­bum, re­leased on March 2 via Carpark Records. They hit SXSW 2018 and are visit­ing Mil­wau­kee April 7.

Schrader emailed WiG about the for­ma­tion of the band and work­ing with Dea­con on the new record. on Jaz­zMind? No, but it feels like the place where we should be.
