Now that they have their own label the New Black, Roll The Dice's Peder Mannerfelt & Malcolm Pardon have issued some of their more collaborative work as Assimilarity. Here they hook up with the likes of Alessandro Cortini, and El Perro del Mar on a collection which drifts from dream-pop to kraut to noise and back again.
Here's a joke to cheer you up in these terrible times...
What's the name of that guy from Roll The Dice.. Malcolm...?
I SAID WHAT'S THE NAME OF THAT GUY FROM ROLL THE DICE...etc etc.
Thank you. Goodnight.

Roll The Dice aka Swedish duo Malcolm Pardon and Peder Mannerfelt finally compile collaborative works previously available as digital-only releases on their own The New Black label. Available for the first time on vinyl are six tracks created alongside Alessandro Cortini, Sophia Loizou, Glasser, Pär Grindvik, Goran Kafjes and El Perro del Mar.
The record is an edition of 300 copies and comes in a beautiful package including six LP-sized art prints by Fabio Almeida - each representing one of the tracks.
First up is the peculiar ‘Buried’ alongside Stockholm LTD bossman Pär Grindvik - slowly building tension like some middle eastern folk/jazz hybrid. ‘Hydra’ with Alessandro Cortini evolves from fluttering kosmische and erupts into sizzling noise. They’re joined by Glasser on 'Elevate' for some dark ethereal dream pop. Goran Kajfeš adds trumpet to the sleazy, skittering electro-jazz-noir of ‘Sketches of Pain’ but it’s Sophia Loizou that steals the show, deploying her mutilated hardcore/jungle/breaks and darkside bassline on ‘Head Drop’. El Perro del Mar makes a vocal appearance on the industrial pop of ‘Big Black’. Sounding not unlike Julee Cruise, it’s one of a few moments on the record that wouldn’t be out of place in a David Lynch film.
