Health, ‘::DISCO2′ (Lovepump United)

Abigail Everdell // June 9, 2010

This Los Angeles quartet augment the scathing buzz-saw noise and artillery percussion of last year’s Get Color album with a batch of audaciously free-handed remixes. Jacob Duzsik’s vaporous, disembodied vocals float above phlegmatic chillwave grooves (CFCF’s “Before Tigers” and Small Black’s “Severin”), while Crystal Castles’ “Eat Flesh” amplifies a battering drum line with jagged chiptune blips. But the new “USA Boys,” mixed by Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails), is a true redefinition-bridling the band’s dynamic intensity around a hiccupping synth and thudding heartbeat.
