I haven't spent much time with it yet, but there's so much life and energy in the new disc.

Get Color has jumped onto my year's top-10 after two listens, thanks to mentions on the P4 and PopMatters polls. The influence of Wire is all over this: the guitar sounds (are those even guitars) are lifted off the Read & Burn EPs, the vocal presence and melodies is Colin Newman, there's a song that could have fit on The Ideal Copy, and the most audible difference is that HEALTH's (that's how they want is capitalized, it seems) has a hot-shit drummer, whereas Gotobed shrank from light.
More people should here this before 2009 is consigned to the history books.

Not saying Gotobed was bad, he was just more motorik and less flamboyant. He was content to be the canvas.

Hell, I even like the video. No one comes to my Dionysian blood wearing Prada.

that song kinda reminds me of a slowed-down Fuck Buttons. I like it

Somewhat bizarrely, they are soundtracking the videogame Max Payne 3, with a soundtrack album released 15 May:

haven't listened to it yet, but am interested. i'm not a huge video game player, but i'd be interested in hearing how their music worked within the context of the game.
when i saw that they were doing this it reminded me of the linkin park discussion that happened upthread.

Only "Tears", which appears in the promo video, is really like their prior work. The soundtrack album is otherwise instrumental, with their excellent drummer playing Brazilian (as is the game's setting) percussion at the forefront.
