Ed Schrader’s Music Beat – “Laughing” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Miles Bowe / May 20, 2014 - 12:09 pm

Ed Schrader’s Music Beat just finished tearing it up as Future Islands’ opener, and today they put out Party Jail, the follow up to their incendiary debut, Jazz Mind, after a series of great singles including “Pantomime Jack,” “Televan,” and “Pink Moons.” To mark that release the band enlisted Dylan Going to make a video for album cut “Laughing.” It follows a man in a bondage mask (whose casual manner reminds me of Jon Glaser’s perpetually ski-mask-wearing hero from Delocated) as he tries out online dating. Watch it below.

Party Jail is out now via Infinity Cat.
