Punk-gone-astral quartet HEALTH and the eight-bit-remix duo Crystal Castlesthe former from L.A., the latter from Ontarioboth service the jaded ears of blog-happy listeners who probably couldnt pick the album art to Zoso out of a lineup. HEALTHs mix-and-match self-titled debut channeled the reverb of a Liars record and a naïf-ish willingness to hit the wrong note into a vaguely pretentious Boredoms pastiche that also doubled as one of last years more consistent albums; Crystal Castles remixed its best song, Crimewave, and found themselves #9 on a 2007 U.K. singles chart. The duos own eponymous debut arrives this week; together, theyll provide a great excuse for all their respective MySpace friends to finally meet. With Team Robespierre and Apache Beat.
