A HEALTHy Dose of Noise Rock

    If big, bold, and brash are the wicked ingredients that wet your appetite, Los Angeles experimental quartet HEALTH will probably have you drooling on your own shoe once they finish bulldozing you over. Firing on a plenty of percussive bombast and magnificent, radio static guitar drones, the band’s recently released 11 song, 30 minute debut is a devilish delight of noise rock anthems that have had the band name-checked everywhere from hometown publications to England’s biggest rock rags. To learn that the band neglected the stale studio environment in favor of a dark, dirty, brick club in downtown Los Angeles for the recording certainly comes as no surprise. HEALTH rumble and roll off whatever walls confine them. A recent experience at one of the band’s seven CMJ stops taught us that such abrasive and course bouts of rock also translate into awfully intense live work. Keep an eye on Baeble in the next few weeks for exclusive video from the band’s performance at The Fader Sideshow. In the meantime, stream the band’s entire album HERE, and check out the band at any of the handful of dates they are currently set to play on the west coast. – David Pitz
