Todd P’s Inaugural MtyMx Festival: A Photo Essay

[Editor's Note: The following guest post is by Ryan Muir, one of NYC's most hardworking and talented photographers. After spending the better part of five days lugging his camera equipment all over Austin on our behalf, he waited for hours in a parking lot for a bus to Monterrey, Mexico to attend NYCMore »

HEALTH – “In Heat (Javelin Remix)”

While you're waiting for Eric Wareheim to take Dr. Steve Brule's catch phrase to the realest level with his next video directorial assignment for your HEALTH, there's this new remix to keep you busy. Because all you do is track down Tim & Eric news and wait for HEALTH jams. The band's called… More »

Monolith 2009 In Photos

While we were rocking the Catskills, enjoying what Wayne Coyne said was "the greatest collection of underground music ever assembled," dozens of other great indie bands (and a few hip-hop luminaries) put on a much larger mountain festival in Morrison, Colorado. In its third year Monolith delivered rain from the get-go, but that only… More »

HEALTH/Pictureplane @ The Troubadour, Los Angeles 9/9/09

HEALTH and Pictureplane make for logical tour partners. They're Lovepump labelmates, and bands to watch, and they both find creative ways to fuck with their love for making people dance. (Or at least, move.) They kicked off a month of shows together at the Troubadour in Los Angeles the other night, with Dam… More »

New HEALTH Video – “Die Slow”

On the eve of a pair of Los Angeles shows in support of Nine Inch Nails, recently remixed noise-rockers HEALTH have released a self-directed video for Get Color standout "Die Slow." (It just dawned on me: The song opens with the staccato feel of Big Black rewritten for synthesizer before it… More »

HEALTH's cacophonous open-field noise-pop has always lent itself to re-interpretation -- which is why the quartet wisely released an entire remix album, Disco, on the heels of their debut. As we've mentioned, and as you've heard via "Die Slow" and "We Are Water," the Los Angeles group's Get Color makes for exhilarating,… More »

HEALTH Visit Daytrotter

The raucous LA quartet is bundling fun prizes (intoxicated video chat, bag of cat hair) with random copies of Get Color. If that hasn't convinced you to buy it, maybe live MP3s of the album's "Death+" and "We Are Water" along with oldie "Perfect Skin" will. Download at Daytrotter. More »

HEALTH Offer Ridiculous Golden Ticket Sweepstakes

When we presented you with HEALTH's "We Are Water," I mentioned Get Color was one of the most satisfying releases of '09, finding the guys tightening their rhythms, adding deeper layers (and harmonies) to their vocals, and writing stronger, more intense hooks without losing the chaos of their core. In this day and… More »

New HEALTH – “We Are Water” (Stereogum Premiere)

To date, the intensely danceable "Die Slow" and its accompanying Pictureplane remix have been the focus of our Get Color postings. The onetime BTW and onetime more straight-up noisemakers hinted at curve balls in their Progress Report. Nothing curves too much, though: They've tightened their rhythms, added layers to the… More »

HEALTH/Black Lips @ Williamsburg Waterfront, Brooklyn 7/26/09

There were some great sets at the Pool Parties free show at East River State Park yesterday, but blistering HEALTH and raucous Black Lips sets aside, the weather's what dominated the day. As in, everybody toasting life in the sun to the Latin funk of Austin's Grupo Fantsma early, and a few hours later… More »

HEALTH Release Get Color Details

The more danceable "Die Slow" seemed to win over a number of people who once considered HEALTH a bunch of formless noisemakers. Which was a bit of a surprise. They indeed promised a few curve balls (like a ballad) in their Get Color Progress Report, but to these ears the hardworking Trent… More »

New HEALTH – “Die Slow” & “Die Slow (Pictureplane Remix)”

Jessica's Progress Report let us know to expect HEALTH's standard ghostly, there-for-the-atmosphere vocals soldered to a more (because they always sorta were) danceable beat on Get Color's "Die Slow." But who knew the long-ago BTW would fuse the old and newly amped elements so successfully? Right, they probably did. And now you can,… More »

Progress Report: HEALTH

NAME: HEALTH PROGRESS REPORT: Prepping their sophomore album, Get Color (Lovepump United) for release late summer or early fall, "...barring total apocalyptic economic collapse." After hearing about Health's recording process for their next album, Get Color, I'm wondering why the foursome don't cut loose a little more for their live performances. It seems like they… More »

New Crystal Castles Video – “Crimewave (Crystal Castles VS. Health)”

Most remix type things should never be downloaded, let alone get a video. But Crystal Castles' slinky, Nintendo bleepy makeover of HEALTH's "Crimewave" -- a standout track from the exceedingly good HEALTH // DISCO remix album -- well, that can get whatever it wants. The clip has a higher Alice Glass visibility factor than did… More »

Pitchfork Music Festival 2008: Sunday In Photos

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy Aaaaand we're back. Quite a weekend in Chicago, and this is the post to put a Fork in our coverage of this year's party in Union Park. For day last, the threat of storms were nonexistent, but after that sun set, and the weekend drew to a close, it… More »

Crystal Castles Brought Their Strobe Light To NYC This Week

On the walk home from Pianos (to see Port O'Brien and Delta Spirit, should have some pics later), we passed a very sold out Mercury Lounge, where LA ass-kickers HEALTH and 8-bit dance outfit Crystal Castles spent the evening raising hell, danceably. We didn't get in, but we did overhear a simply perfect capsule review… More »

HEALTH Tear Up The Volume Stage At Stereogum’s SXSW Party

Most everyone that was lucky enough to be standing in the vicinity of HEALTH's frighteningly awesomely set this past Saturday were equally dumbstruck, sweaty. The HEALTH set easily landed at the top of our list of favorite sets of the SXSW -- and we're certain this footage will translate to cubicle/streaming-video viewing better tha… More »

SXSW: Saturday Party Picks

As far as we can tell, there are two must-see parties today. Not to be too shameless, but one of them is ours. We're not just saying that -- we've been waiting for this for months now. This afternoon Fuck Buttons, High Places, Blitzen Trapper, No Age, HEALTH, and DJ List Christee (aka Kevi… More »
