HEALTH – “Stonefist”

Synthetic noise-rockers HEALTH are returning this summer with Death Magic, their first LP in six years. We’ve already heard one single, the harrowing “New Coke,” and new song “Stonefist” is equally oppressive.

Report & Photos From FYF Fest 2012

Ever since I was old enough to complain, my dad took great pleasure in the act of dragging my always-resistant ass to music festivals. A summer full of glorious music for him meant a summer full of unstifled groans from me. His taste in music back then — folk, folk, and nothing but folk –… More »

HEALTH Cover Pictureplane’s “Goth Star”

Some cross-Lovepump love, HEALTH making an honest band-track out of labelmate Pictureplane’s seductively sampled, chopped-vocal/screwed-rave druglove-on-the-dancefloor supercut “Goth Star.” Pictureplane’s a BTW and his noise house and hiss, serrated-speaker houseparty soundtrack  Dark Rift LP was one of my favorites last year, one that I still return to; HEALTH’s a BTW whose arty noise and visceral… More »
