- LAMC Vol 2 by Future Islands / Ed Schrader's Music Beat
We’ve got a whole stack of this sweet split single series on Famous Class this week so I’m sitting down to have a listen. First up’s this little celebration of the oft-underestimated Baltimore scene with one track from dusky synthpop sentimentalists Future Islands paired with two from tribalistic minimalist pop eccentric Ed Schrader’s Music Beat. There’s cats on the sleeve too!
The Future Islands offering ‘Cotton Flower’ is their usual epic romantic pop fare with singer Sam’s husky croon taking centre stage as always. After struggling a little with their most recent album I think this single is one of their stronger efforts. On the other side duo Ed Schrader’s Music Beat have ‘Blue Stamped Britches’, a threatening, throbbing number with pulsing two-note bass and Schrader’s trademark tom thump, while ‘Beautiful Transvestite’ is more of a slow-builder with some interesting vocal counterpoint but still the same minimal template.
