Courtesy is Black Dice member Eric Copeland's eleventh studio album in the past decade and his third for Ron Morelli's label. Apart from the US producer's prolific output, what impresses most here is his ability to deliver a wide range of styles within the general lo-fi spectrum. "Doggy" is a goofy workout that nonetheless takes inspiration from Chicago house, while in contrast, "Chinatown" is a jittery, punky affair and on "Oppsy Dayzee", he veers into a breathless, widescreen synth direction. However, such clean sounds are only a temporary distraction and Copeland's default position rests in the creation of busy, complex, left of centre tracks such as the tonal mess of "Following the Man" or on the drilling riffs and hyperactive cowbells of "Convoy".
