Ed Schrader Review in Subba Cultcha.

Ed Schrader’s Music Beat 
‘Jazz Mind’
Leftfield Paranoid Pop
LP/CD
(Upset the Rhythm)

“Before Ed Schrader’s Music Beat, Ed made music (by) putting trippy sounds over pounding drums. A 10” from four years back documents this era, before Ed expanded the project into Music Beat. In 2009 Devlin Rice (also of Nuclear Power Pants) joined Ed for a one-off show. The band formed quite unintentionally. Ed was invited to play a rave of all things, and before almost deciding to opt out decided to join forces with his roommate Devlin for the performance, and play as a duo, the show was magical with Ed doing manic extended versions of his songs , crooning to a glow stick friendly crowd under a full moon in September, while Devlin raged alongside creating an infectious combination that was too good to leave as a one night affair. This mind meld took the left field paranoid pop that Ed was composing and added a powerful low end power chug from the jug of eternal rock and raised the whole project a more visceral live experience.
Since then the band has done considerable touring with acts such as Future Islands, Lightning Bolt, Dan Deacon and really whipped up some enthusiasm based on their minimal and real rock vision.”
