Album Review

Reviewed 2018-06-25 
Ed Schrader is a thunderclap talent that can fill any space with his one-man wall of sound. That is exactly what he did in the oughts. In many ways, this is probably how Schrader prefers to perform: ultimate minimalism. However, as a rubber band can only be stretched so far before snapping, Schrader had to maximize his minimalism. In 2010, he increased his lineup by 100 percent by adding Devlin Rice on bass. Ed Schrader and the Music Beat also added Dan Deacon to bring his electro-pop vision to their new album, Riddles.

Like: Liars, Dan Deacon
