Ed Schrader’s Music Beat signs to Carpark, announces album + tour, shares single

January 10, 2018 10:16 am

A rock duo from Baltimore that, despite all the reports, takes itself seriously.

Today, we are more than pleased to welcome Ed Schrader’s Music Beat to the Carpark family. Their new release, Riddles, will be coming your way March 2nd. In the meantime, you can watch the *sick* music video for their first single, “Dunce”, via Noisey.

“For me, the album parallels feelings of confronting the past, resolving it, facing the music, and blasting out of it,” says Ed. “It’s the album our hearts wanted us to make.” Riddles is a full-length collaboration between Ed Schrader’s Music Beat and Dan Deacon. All three people invested their souls into this record for two full years, and it shows.

We can’t wait to share this record with you. Pre-orders are available now on the Carpark shop, iTunes, and Spotify. You can also bundle your purchase with Ed Schrader’s Music Beans! They are roasted and packaged by the band at Thread Coffee in Baltimore, MD. A very limited supply. Get them while you can!

In celebration of the new album, the band has also a North American run this Spring. Tour dates here.

“90210” music video

December 18, 2017 11:22 am

Head over to Clash Magazine to watch Dent May’s iconic new video for “90210.”

“90210” is about moving to Los Angeles from Mississippi and feeling out of place at a fancy party. The video was directed by my friend Carson Culver with cinematography by Sean Price Williams, who shot my favourite movie in recent memory Good Time. It stars Los Angeles icon Tennessee Luke, who many will recognize from Tim & Eric and who I recently witnessed deliver a stirring rendition of I Believe I Can Fly at a local comedy show. -Dent May

“90210” is taken from Dent’s 2017 release, Across The Multiverse, available now on the Carpark shop & iTunes.
