On its self-titled 2007 debut, Los Angeles band Health presented a bracing symphony in chromatic static, sandblasting through whatever genres it felt like desecrating whenever its members wanted. From epic rock to hardcore to dance-punk to skeletal synth-and-drums workouts, Health spun a whirling but precise sound hellbent on bleeding eardrums like perv vampires. But don’t dismiss these guys as confused noise boys; they’re out to rock your body hard, even if the lyrics are a bit too unclear to really shout along with.
