Watch Ed Schrader’s Music Beat Play 3 Riddles Songs In Their Goofy Stereogum Session

Baltimore duo Ed Schrader’s Music Beat released their excellent third album, Riddles, last month, and they’ve been bopping around North America over the past few weeks on tour. They have a handful of shows left before heading to Europe next month, but before they play those, they stopped by our NYC offices to perform a Stereogum Session. They did three songs from Riddles: its title track, “Culebra,” and “Kid Radium.” And if you’ve ever seen ESMB live before, you’d know that Schrader is good with the jokes, and that’s no exception here, which makes for a very goofy session with a lot of heart.
