MP3 of the Day #92: HEALTH

By on Friday, 21st August 2009 at 5:34 pm
 

Somehow I’ve managed to miss this great Los Angeles band for a while. HEALTH have toured with the likes of Crystal Castles, Nine Inch Nails, and Of Montreal, and their sound is truly indescribable. Whilst browsing Pitchfork I found news of a brilliant (and hilarious) album giveaway that they’re doing (details after the jump).

Whilst you wait for your version of their album to turn up (and hopefully your special golden ticket) on your doorstep, download, listen and enjoy to their previous single, “Die Slow”, and an amazing remix of said song.
