Back in 2012, we made Ed Schrader’s Music Beat, an intense and minimal Baltimore postpunk duo, a Band To Watch. The band’s new single “Pantomime Jack” is a strong indicator of why you should be paying attention to them, even despite that band name. It’s a two-minute banger that moves from sinister throb to assaultive scream-along with head-spinning speed. Listen to it below.
The new album Party Jail is coming this spring on Infinity Cat.
