Album Review: HEALTH - Death Magic

29 July 2015 | 1:16 pm | Matt MacMaster

"Death Magic is HEALTH violently interpreting pop music."

More HEALTH More HEALTH

Get Color was HEALTH applying a scorched earth policy to dance music.

It was a messy, brutal record that built something beautiful out of jagged pieces of synth and hellish landscapes of industrial rhythm. Six years on, Death Magic is HEALTH violently interpreting pop music. It's still a bit frightening (Stonefist and New Coke are incredible in their glistening, monstrous excess, like sequined kaiju trashing downtown LA or something), but Death Magic is an album with stars in its eyes. It's blissed-out, post-apocalyptic doom rave that chews gum and levels buildings.
