Artist: BLACK DICE
Title: Beaches & Canyons
Format: CD
Label: DFA
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Known for never performing a song the same way twice, Black Dice manipulates and reorganizes sound into a fluid, swelling, blissed-out frenzy while your brain searches for patterns, your body struggles to find the beat. Somehow, it all comes together in a discombobulated synchronicity. It is chaotic for sure, but somehow symphonic and orchestrated as well. They manipulate their instruments and feedback at intense volumes with the energy and enthusiasm of artists in love with the beautiful sounds of a machine." - DFA.

Title: Broken Ear Record
Format: LP
Label: DFA
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"The latest masterpiece from uncompromising sonic adventurers BLACK DICE. On Broken Ear Record, the haunting avant funscapes on their previous Creature Comforts album gives way to a slightly darker, more percussive sound filled with tribal textures and fractured voices. Hypnotic, rhythmic, densely textured, and chaotic yet structured experimental rocking." - DFA.

Title: Cone Toaster/Endless Happiness
Format: 12"
Label: DFA
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Fuck electroclash -- this Brooklyn quartet is here to plant a flag in your skinny-tie ass, reclaiming it in the name of twisted, post-ambient no wave sounds. Cone Toaster, their new single, is a track that lays a 4/4 techno thump under some of the strangest noises made by, well we actually have no idea how they were made. And we dont ask questions. The B-side features a remix by Eye of Japanese legends The Boredoms, bringing a (dare we say) jazzy dance sound to the group." - DFA.

Title: Creature Comforts
Format: LP
Label: DFA
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"This is the official follow-up to their DFA debut CD and Double LP Beaches & Canyons. It finds the band pushing in yet another direction, at once unmistakably Black Dice, and noticeably different. Recorded with Steve Revitte (Liars, Kill Me Tomorrow), the DFA & Nicolas Vernhes (Fisherspooner, Fiery Furnaces). Venturing further into their own psychedelic, increasingly electronic world, Creature Comforts is as expansive, experimental and structurally unique as its predecessor, but there is a new sense of playfulness and accessibility mixed with naïve wonder and not-quite-steady rhythms. It is hazy, dreamy, but they have suddenly emerged as a band with an untouchably original terrain, mixing dub, tropicalia and the entire history of psychedelic rock music into one heady concoction." - DFA. Highly recommended!

Title: Manoman
Format: 12"
Label: DFA
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"The latest release from New York avant-garde leaders BLACK DICE features three brand new tracks that further refine the industrial, beat-driven direction of their last album, Broken Ear. Coinciding with the release of this 12-inch single (which includes a full-color poster designed by BJORN COPELAND), Black Dice recently teamed up with longtime friend and photographer JASON FRANK ROTHENBERG on a collection of found images, photographs, and collages. Entitled Gore (listed below), this flexi-bound, full-color book documents both the making of the aforementioned album and the cut-and-paste, psychedelic aesthetic that has influenced a whole new generation of artists and musicians." - DFA.

Title: Miles of Smiles
Format: 12"
Label: DFA
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Every release by Black Dice is different. You know that by now, right? Changing the game once again, Black Dice release this 2 song EP, entitled Miles of Smiles. Clocking in at a total running time of 28 minutes, this release will please and confound fans and critics alike, as the band prove once again that whatever they tackle, it is on their terms only. Miles of Smiles was originally created for The Poetry of Sex art exhibit in Tokyo and finds the band exploring a Musique Concrete-like world of chance and surprise. The flip side Trip Dude Delay has been a live staple for many years. It has been on the DFA release schedule for far too long, and we are thrilled to finally get it out there for everyone to experience." - DFA. Highly Recommended!

Artist: COPELAND, ERIC
Title: Black Bubblegum
Format: LP
Label: DFA
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
“Pop has always bubbled up between the cracks of Eric Copelands musical concoctions, but his love of catchy melodies is clearer than ever on Black Bubblegum. He still approaches everything from left-field, tripping out with giddy playfulness. But the ten tracks here are more song-like than anything hes done before, mixing pop hooks—and even a few choruses and bridges—with the repetition of dub. The result is music you can dance to without twisting yourself into knots. The decision to go pop makes Black Bubblegum Copelands most focused album. Where his past records were quick to veer off on far-flung tangents—often with thrilling results—here he keeps his eyes on the main musical idea in each tune. Hes still in love with loops, and every track has a rhythm that holds firm throughout. But now repetition is less an end in itself than a tool for making melodies infectious. In fact, the best songs are so infectious that Copeland himself sounds intoxicated by them. The call-and-response vocals of "Rip It" could be some alternate-universe party anthem chanted by spring-breakers. Spry beats dot the slithery "Fuck It Up" and the stoner hip-hop of "On." "Dont Beat Your Baby" uses chunky guitar chords and searing solos to set its hooks on fire. Black Bubblegum might seem like a fleeting pleasure destined to slip quickly from memory, but theres more to it than instant gratification. As with all of Copelands records, surprising angles and intriguing touches are strewn throughout. But this is also an incredibly fun record, which is enough reason to play it over and over.” - Marc Masters/Resident Advisor.

Artist: COPELAND, ERIC
Title: Joke in the Hole
Format: Double LP
Label: DFA
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"New Yorks ERIC COPELAND, integral member of BLACK DICE and TERRESTRIAL TONES, is back with a new solo album and an altogether new musical approach. Samples clatter playfully, while wild and wobbly drum breaks hold the arrangements together-barely. Joke in the Hole also marks Copelands return to DFA, where Black Dice released their seminal 2002 debut Beaches & Canyons-the labels first-ever full-length.  In search of the essential feel-good psychedelic noise record for the summer? Look no further. Vinyl includes digital download coupon." - DFA.

Title: Masterbater
Format: 12"
Label: DFA
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"ERIC COPELAND of BLACK DICE returns to DFA with "Masterbater," 11+ minutes of skronking gyrations and prickly samples. Throughout the track, radio-static intrusions and snatches of glossolalic R&B give the impression that Copeland is stuck inside his car, flicking impatiently from channel to channel while a hailstorm pelts the enclosing steel. But "Masterbater" doesnt devolve into the self-indulgence implied by the title, maintaining propulsion even as conflicting tensions swallow each other whole." -DFA.

Artist: COPELAND, ERIC
Title: Ms Pretzel
Format: 12"
Label: DFA
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"12" Vinyl EP in a picture sleeve featuring collaged artwork by Eric Copeland himself. 
Ms Pretzel is a 4 track, 20-minute EP of brand new material by Eric Copeland (Black Dice, Terrestrial Tones). This is Erics return to DFA after the release of an acclaimed single on Ron Morellis underground dance juggernaut L.I.E.S., which followed his beloved 2013 album “Joke In The Hole”, his solo debut for DFA.
The music on Ms Pretzel most certainly continues to break new sonic ground, a process which has gradually unfolded over the last few years via many prior works on seminal underground labels such as Underwater Peoples, Escho, Post Present Medium, and Catsup Plate, among many others. Ms Pretzel takes Erics outsider fascination with 4/4 dance music and twists it yet again. It is the sound of Eric Copeland throwing a wobbly dance party in a junkyard. DFA could not be more excited to host this gritty event." - DFA.

“If Copeland is interested in the conventions of clubland, its at the point where someones puking on their shoes outside the venue, a distant throb of bass beating into their brain through the brickwork.” - Pitchfork
“The rhythms might be recognisably house or hip-hop, but Copeland pulls and squeezes their structures like accordions.” - Resident Advisor
“Though constantly teetering on a knifes edge - to be expected in such mental, syncopated mashups - this is wildly colourful and knowingly absurd music.” - The Quietus

Artist: COPELAND, ERIC
Title: Remixes (Panda Bear, Larry Gus, Fhloston Paradigm, Anthony Naples)
Format: 12"
Label: DFA
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Limited editon of 1000 hand-stamped and numbered copies, assembled at DFA in NYC.
DFA is proud to release a long-gestating 12” single of wild interprations of Eric Copelands 2013 album “Joke In The Hole”. The Black Dice member received universal acclaim for the record, “Fringe though Copeland may be, this album is a serious coup for DFA—he walks the line between complete nuttiness and outright accessibility, and ends up with one of his best records to date.” (XLR8R) Starting us off is Panda Bear, who adds his trademark falsetto vocals and shuffling percussion, sweetening Erics black coffee beats. DFAs own sonic collagist Larry Gus blends Erics mumbled vocals with bright percussion and a vocoded male choir, among many other audio dalliances. Meanwhile, Hyperdubs Fhloston Paradigm (AKA King Britt) takes aim with his laser cannons, firing volleys at unrelenting waves of marching alien armies, before being swallowed up in a solar flare. Finally, Anthony Naples (Text Records, Trilogy Tapes) brings it back to the club with snaps, claps, and hi-hats, but it sounds like you left ‘em out in the rear window of your car on a sunny day. You know what we mean." - DFA.

Artist: COPELAND, ERIC/LARRY GUS
Title: s/t
Format: 12"
Label: DFA
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"DFA takes two artists who released different sorts of summer psychedelia on DFA this year and pairs them with 2 fantastic new remixers / producers who have both done work for L.I.E.S. , ANTHONY NAPLES (whose personal obsession with BLACK DICE made him an obvious candidate for the job) & BOOKWORMS (who LARRY GUS watched play live @ Output this year mouth agape.) Anthony Naples takes ERIC COPELANDs song and gives us essentially "Cone Toaster pt 2" which is just what we wanted. Bookworms takes shreds of Larrys parts and builds something dark and loud sheets of sound layered on top of relentless sub sounds. A real surprise and great unique marriage of artists and remixers. Hand stamped edition of 500 blue label records with custom spine label & download code." - DFA.

Artist: SPIKED PUNCH
Title: Guinea Pig
Format: 7"
Label: DFA
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"Spiked Punch is a new project from 2/3 of Black Dice, Eric Copeland and Aaron Warren. After the third member Bjorn Copeland relocated to Los Angeles in 2015, Aaron and Eric worked on a Black Dice remix commission for Awesome Tapes From Africa, for artist Aby Ngana Diop. Through this creative process, they hit upon a new sort of inspiration for making music and Spiked Punch was born. These two tracks were born out of long form improvisations between Eric and Aaron. It is most definitely music born of their environment in Brooklyn - the lo-fi bodega beats seeping out of the dozens of delis, trial and error with early sample chopping, watching YouTube tutorials for help, the eerie comfort of late night local TV, and a sweltering Brooklyn summer cooled and fueled by Tecate. The duo also emphasizes the music was recorded on an iBook from 2004. The music Spiked Punch have created is wildly percussive and zig zags around tweaked vocal stabs and dubbed out bass lines. When pressed for more personal descriptors for the music the band responded with this: Coconut bongos, pineapple kick drums, stolen bike vocals, peanut chew bass-lines." - DFA.
