Eric Copeland - Masterbater

$9.99

11 minutes of Eric Copeland that didn't quite fit on his "Joke In The Hole" LP, so we made this special one-sided 12". Comes in a custom full-art sleeve.

Eric Copeland of Black Dice returns to DFA with "Masterbater," 11+ minutes of skronking gyrations and prickly samples. The intrusions of radio static throughout, along with snatches of glossolalic R&B, make it seem as if Copeland is stuck inside his car flicking impatiently from channel to channel while a hailstorm pelts the enclosing steel.  But "Masterbater" doesn't devolve into the self-indulgence implied by the title, maintaining propulsion even as conflicting tensions swallow each other whole.

Eric Copeland - Ms Pretzel

$13.99

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 Eric’s return to DFA after the release of an acclaimed single on Ron Morelli’s 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 Eric’s 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.

“If Copeland is interested in the conventions of clubland, it’s at the point where someone’s 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 knife’s edge - to be expected in such mental, syncopated mashups - this is wildly colourful and knowingly absurd music.” - The Quietus

 

Tracklisting:

  1. Ms Pretzel
  2. SXIXO
  3. Scum of the Cream
  4. A1EZOK
