Boomkat Product Review:
It's album number four for Brooklyn's electro-psych weirdos, and they don't seem to be getting any more conventional, or for that matter, any easier to write about. While there's certainly something irrefutably experimental about Black Dice's output, there remains evidence of a certain amount of pop music know-how writhing around in the band's work. The tracks here are culled from a number of 12" vinyl EPs, including what must go down as the most bizarre music ever to have appeared on DFA. Check out the laptop carnival vibes of 'Gore', the swampy oscillations of 'Toka Toka' and 'Manoman's chopped up skronk: you'd be hard pressed to find music that made any less sense, really. It's not quite freed-up enough to sit alongside the noisier end of the American underground scene, nor is it organised enough to be considered as anything so mundane as electronica. That's what makes Black Dice such a blast though, while there are recognisable forms and techniques in their working methods, there's also a rampantly Dadaist approach to sound design that deviates wildly from what most people would term as 'musical', thus resulting in throbbing, time-stretched headscratchers like 'Roll Up' or 'Drool'. Monumentally weird, but quite wonderful nonetheless.
