Post-punk noise duo coming to Milwaukee
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.
