HEALTH :: "Die Slow"

Noise-rockers HEALTH didn't exactly grab me with their first record. But second album, Get Color is quickly burning its way into my soul/itunes. The music is just as pissed off and menacing as the first album, just a shade more melodic. On "Die Slow," we're slowly introduced to a tweaky dance-party that comes at your ears like a fuzzed-out wave, flowing down a long hallway. It is both far away and incredibly close. The threat of the initial riffs never truly leaves, even if it becomes more familiar. In a churning, vaguely-industrial finishing kick, HEALTH prove they are not ones to be looked at directly in the eye. So, lower your gaze and back away slowly. Or, in a turn of events, run quickly towards it.
