HEALTH - Self Titled
'Angular oddities in jarring bursts of noise'
The best way I could describe this band would be if Naked City, Animal Collective, Boredoms and Battles had some sort of hip, immaculately dressed baby who hung out in cafes and art galleries. Take that as you will and download this album. HEALTH blur the lines between structure and chaos, noise and music, listenable indie rock and full blown sound experimentation. Here lies within 11 tracks, spanning from twinkly melodies, electronica, Jesus Lizard-esque guitar riffing and atonal noise attacks. If you feel like being lured into a false sense of security, only to be ambushed by a sudden change of genre or direction, repeatedly, this is the album for you.
