HEALTH+Awesome Color+Kid Congo Powers
On "Die Slow," the lead single from their upcoming second album, HEALTH return like a less brainy Battles banged into the shape of vintage Brainiac. By all accounts, the Los Angeles combo have kept the raucous clang and kooky sounds from the strange part of town that helped their debut post up on the swirly post-punk redux scene. On the new Get Color, they figured out how to temper that with some red light district foot-tap. Then again, they probably bought a new cauldron of feedback with last year's tour receipts, so expect submersion in that, too. With Ectastic Peace! kids Awesome Color and Kid Congo Powers.
