Health, ‘Get Color’ (Lovepump United)

Try as they noisily might, this Los Angeles quartet (who have toured with acts from Nine Inch Nails to Of Montreal) can’t help but let catchy — albeit disintegrated — vocals push through the exhilarating racket of their second album. “In Heat” allows one loveless sliver to escape before pummeling it with a distorted kick drum. Guitars and synths, both shimmering and scouring (depending on the volume level), can’t quite override the sweet harmonies at the heart of “Die Slow,” nor can the toms stop them on “Death+” or “We Are Water.”
