Song of the Day: New Health album out Sept. 8

This single almost caused a riot on a tour through Europe. This is odd, since it sounds rather tame by Health's standards. It doesn't sound as if they're actually dying in the studio. The beat and staccato synth riff aren't even that noisy, and the fits of rage are kept to a minimum not implied by cover art about blood and consumer culture. Pre-press for the upcoming album insists it will be a manifesto for the band and for noise rock in general. We'll see.
