HEALTH formed in Los Angeles in 2006, playing their first shows at The Smell, L.A.’s legendary DIY venue, which also hosts some of the earliest performances of No Age, Mika Mika and Abe Vigoda. They released their self-titled debut album in 2007, recorded by the band themselves during a sweltering summer locked in the smell; Pitchfork raved that the self mixed, self produced record “mixes the bombastic pound of Boredoms, the skewed structures of Deerhoof, the tribal thump of Liars, and even the synth squirts of Black Dice and Excepter.” HEALTH released their second full-length, Get Color, in 2009. The latest album, DEATH MAGIC, was released in 2015 on Loma Vista Recordings, and received critical praise from The New Yorker, Pitchfork and The Fader.
