- Whorehouse Blues by Eric Copeland
1 review. Write a review for us »
Eric Copeland is a fucking mad genius. As a core member of Black Dice he's been frying my brain for some time. He can also be found deep in the zone of experimentation with Terrestrial Tones (a collaboration with Animal Collective's Avey Tare) and as a solo artist. 'Whorehouse Blues' is a fine example of Copeland at his demented best, forging joyous psych-pop from fragmented rhythms and melodies that remind Ant of The Butthole Surfers as remixed by Fat Boy Slim. It's an 'out there' mash-up of sounds you can pretty much dance too...if you want. It's making me dizzy though, I'm just gonna sit here puffing blunts. Flip and you get the super lo-fi 'Guk' that manipulates a live basement jam into a full on aggressive vocal rant that brings to mind Mark E. Smith before slipping into classic Rock'n'Roll/R'n'B mode with 'U.F.O's Over Vampire City', a sax laden ode to the good old days of the Enchantment Under The Sea dance and wearing 3D specs as a fashion accessory. It's like Copeland is home alone fronting Spectrals on Christmas morning in Doo-Wop mode. I knew I'd get something decent to review this week. Fan-bloody-tastic. OH!
