Download a Churning Post-Punk Mood Piece From Ed Schrader’s Music Beat

Ed Schrader's Music Beat

Baltimore’s Ed Schrader has built a wildman reputation for mixing shirtless, Mark Stewart-style post-punk free-association with completely unhinged tom-tom bashing — and, starkly, pretty much nothing else. For his first LP for the mighty Load Records, he adds a bass player, Devlin Rice, turning his one-man intervention to a two man loft-noise party. In a too-quick 20-minutes, Jazz Mind recalls Neurosis, Swans, Big Black, the Death Set and pretty much the the unfiltered, primordial joy of pounding on shit. Check out one of its more mellow moments, “My Mind is Broken By the Sound,”featuring No Age’s Randy Randall showing up to add a gentle sheen of sheet-metal guitarage
