Jim Noir – Finnish Line (self release)

Eric Copeland: Artist You Should Know

Posted December 10, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 940 views]

A tried and true tenured artist throughout DFA’s history, Black Dice has also arguably always been it’s most left-field. A truly one of a kind outfit, they’ve pretty much always done things their way without regard for trends or what is “cool.”
