Health on suicide squeeze


I got this full length at permanent records the other weekend and I had misjudged this band, the full length which was on red clear vinyl, from lovepump united...DNT has the cassette also fyi, and maybe it's because of their split with crystal castles (also still available from Lovepump) that I got so confused. It was all over the place, I was so confused in a good way, the same thing I got listening to Blood on the Wall. This was less melody and traditional song structure, and more sound experiment, ranging from this tribal distortion scream, to electronica, I didn't even have a reference, it was all over the place in a great way.
I didn't know what to expect next and it's so confusing I have to keep listening to it to try to figure it out. But it's pretty mysterious and dark, like These are powers, they are chanelling something primal and I'm really into it.
So Suicide Squeeze is releasing this 7" in February, and maybe they have all kinds of 7"'s planned this year, I got the feeling it's part of some kind of series or something. Go preorder it, it's going to be gone. That full length vinyl is sold out.
That reminds me of another act on suicide squeeze Hella, kind of similar, complex, crazy sound, don cab through ring modulation. Always challenging.
The B-side is a remix, which I don't know....I like health, not remixers.
