God Warrior Of The Week

The God Warrior for the week of May 5 is Eric Copeland!

Eric Copeland is a member of Black Dice, works with Animal Collective’s own Avey Tare in Terrestrial Tones, and is an overall noise pioneer of epic proportions. Signed to the ever-so-incestuous Paw Tracks label, Copeland met most of his band-mates in Providence, Rhode Island while studying at the Rhode Island School Of Design. He and his cronies frequently play at art museums and have released Gore, a book that effortlessly translates their complex sound into images. Unfortunately, it is out of print.

Copeland’s solo album Hermaphrodite is quite similar to Black Dice’s sound, presenting droned-out, abstract soundscapes and a penchant for blurring the lines between electronic and psychedelic. With all of the emerging noise bands and artists these days, Copeland and crew are too legit to be overlooked.
