- The experimental trio will release their fifth official full-length in April.
Experimental Brooklyn trio Black Dice have announced the imminent release of their fifth official full-length.
Entitled Repo, the record sees the former DFA act going in a slightly accessible direction. We think. Described in the press release as having cultivated a "new roadhouse blues-band philosophy" and having a collection of "concise" songs to show it off, you'd be forgiven for thinking that these tunes will be a kinder and gentler Black Dice. In the same breath, however, we get "sonically battering" and "flat-out bizarre," which for a band that started their career off with a host of legendarily confrontational noise performances before unleashing an almost soothing dub-inspired collection of droning noise rock on their breakthrough album, Beaches and Canyons, is saying quite a bit. Whatever the result, fans of acts like Gang Gang Dance and Fuck Buttons will get their fix come April, once the record is released on Paw Tracks.
