MP3/Video: New Black Dice; LP in April


“Pigs” comes from Mr. Impossible, due on the Ribbon


By Blurt Staff


Ribbon Music is doing the Black
Dice, Mr. Impossible, due April 10 in the U.S. and on April 9 worldwide. It’s
the NYC trio’s sixth album overall and first album for the label, and is
described as “the soundtrack to a substance-fueled teen basement show on Mars.”


Uh huh. Who writes this
stuff? Anyhow, we are also advised that the record “explores the uncommon
ground between The Seeds punk primitivism, extra-terrestrial throbbing of
Funkadelic, and discordant rebelliousness of Royal Trux.”


Now yer talking. Let’s listen
to first single “Pigs.” The video is below.



Black Dice – Pigs by Ribbon Music




For over fifteen years Black
Dice have continuously reinvented and mutated punk music into new sonic stews.  Eric Copeland, Bjorn Copeland, and Aaron
Warren have released scores of albums, EPs, and singles on iconic labels (Gravity,
31g,Troubleman, DFA, Paw Tracks), that document their musical travels, from raw
brutal thrash to inside-out pop anthems from way out. A decade and half of
evolution has seen the amplification get larger, and the instruments more
enigmatic. Drums and bass guitars have been replaced with mixer feedback,
processed vocals, and alien sounds that seek to seduce and repulse
impressionable ears. Using videos, live projections, and printed ephemera, the
band has developed an over the top psychoactive audio-visual aesthetic that
twists the useless pop sights and sounds we are bombarded with into infectious
new strains of music and imagery that ooze a rock and roll spirit.
