Eric Copeland returns with a new album. Suweeeet!
After the insanely fucky magic of ‘Waco Taco Combo’ and a slew of awesome ‘poppier’ 7” releases on PPM it’s pleasing to see him keeping up a vigorous work schedule on ‘Limbo’. This one gets additional brownie points for coming out on the ever impressive Underwater Peoples label and sees key Black Dice member and one half of Terrestrial Tones (the other half being Animal Collective’s Avey Tare) on typically fine form.
Now, if you don’t know Copeland’s twisted bong-stained take on sampledelic experimental pop then you should either catch up or forget about it ‘cause this guy is deep in the hole and it’s unlikely this’ll make much sense to the uninitiated. Saying that, Copeland’s music is becoming increasingly listener friendly so this might serve you well as an introduction to his deranged style? It’s always hard to say.
Everything on ‘Limbo’ is in the wonky-as-hell category yet it’s comparatively stripped down by Copeland’s standards. Maybe he’s removed a layer or two to make things easier to digest, but from what I can make of this virgin early morning listen is that ‘Limbo’ is more traditionally musically minded whilst somehow being as possessed as ever. It’s the musical equivalent of him standing still, if only for a minute or two, as opposed to racing about like a space monkey high on triple grade street-pipes.
His workrate is absolutely phenomenal considering the amount of spleeeffs he gets through and I’m amazed at the consistency of his work too. Pretty sure he’s not put out a duffer yet. A totally salute-able bong genius.
