HEALTH is an LA-based band. HEALTH is Benjamin Jared Miller, Jake Duzsik, John Famiglietti, and Jupiter Keyes. HEALTH is noise, music, disco, and fashion—and their shows mix, recombine, and reorient the senses. On their self-titled debut album, recorded at their favorite club, LA’s The Smell, HEALTH shoots through 11 songs in 30 minutes, stretching the aural confines of post-punk rock and roll. They have been compared to Deerhoof, Black Dice, the Liars, and have opened for Nine Inch Nails on part of the Lights in the Sky tour in the fall of 2008. Part of the band’s unique sound comes from the use of the Zoothorn, a permutation of microphone and guitar pedal. HEALTH says that you will love each other. HEALTH’s discography includes HEALTH (2007), HEALTH//DISCO (2008), and the forthcoming Get Color (2009).
Pictureplane is Travis Egedy. Having cut his teeth on killer remixes for Crystal Castles, HEALTH, Thieves Like Us, and worked with Beirut’s Zach Condon, Pictureplane’s debuts with the anthemic and otherworldly “Trance Doll” 7-inch. Grimy synths, broken beats, and bucolic vocals collide somewhere between early 90s house music and the gnarly soundscapes of Black Dice to forge a sound wholly unique and endlessly exciting. It begins here: Pictureplane is going to destroy dance-floors in 2009.
