Eric Copeland - Masterbater

Eric Copeland - Masterbater

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.
