HEALTH: Die Slow (Tobacco Remix)
I am still in a bit of a swoon, post HEALTH’s wonderfully vitriolic show at the 7th St. Entry the other night. So, when I heard this remix of one of the band’s singles by another of my favorite 2010 discoveries, Tobacco (Black Moth Super Rainbow’s Tom Fec), I was immediately very pleased. Tobacco’s gritty back alley synth accompaniment is still considerably smoother and more “club friendly” than the abrasive original song (from last year’s record Get Color). The vocals are still as haunting and menacing as ever though – sounding just as at home alongside Tobacco’s beats as they did originally.
