So Brooklyn’s Black Dice has stepped away from DFA to further its musical endeavors with Animal Collective’s Paw Tracks imprint, but the arty trio hasn’t lost any of its magic in the transition, as suggested by some upcoming North American stops in support of the recently-released Load Blown.

Musically, the guys are still on the brutally buzzing synth-noise tip, but the 18 months spent composing Load Blown should mean a few surprises are in store as well. Check the band’s video for the debut single “Kokomo” for some hints.
