HEALTH - HEALTH
It seems like the last month or so has been pretty dry when it comes to new releases worth posting here. Dan actually tipped me off about this record and it took me a few days to track down a good copy of it. Honestly, you shouldn't even be reading this right now. Just stop and download this record immediately. Not only is this a stellar debut from a very promising band, this is without a doubt one of the best things that will grace your ears in 2007. If I was forced to pigeonhole HEALTH, I'd say that the music they make sounds like a more americanized version of Boredoms. This record is a full out sonic assault. The blasting noise, howling vocals, and amazing drumming will completely blow your balls through your ass one minute and lull you off into a trance the next. I should also mention that these guys routinely play free shows in L.A. So if you're in the area, check them out.
