Black Dice Roll Up b/w Drool
PAW16 12"

Coinciding with their ten year anniversary, Black Dice release a new two song 12” EP, their second release on Paw Tracks. Reflecting another withering season in a Brooklyn basement rehearsal space, the band created a work of abandon, a sonic balloon to unfamiliar vistas. The tunes were debuted on a Peruvian network television show called, funnily enough, “Jammin’,” on their trip to Lima this past fall.

Both “Roll Up” and “Drool” offer something upbeat and hypnotic, looking far away from America 2007, while still retaining a familiar Black Dice raw boldness and playfulness, existing in a wide gray area between jam bands and minimal techno.

While developing new songwriting processes for live concerts, the group recorded these tracks at the Rare Book Room in Brooklyn between local shows and heaps of work outside the band. This release serves as a companion to the recent DFA “Manoman” 12”.
