Day 46: HEALTH – Health

15 Apr


I do this thing where I download an album without doing any research on the band, or what kind of music they make.  With a blog that requires a new album every 24 hours, this is just something I kind of need to do.  If I were picky with my selections, there’s no way I’d have close to enough material.  Plus, I’d be denying myself all of these great bands that I’ve been iffy about before listening.  So I’m going to stick with my blind, random album grabbing; even if it means I’ll be subjecting myself to more noise rock.

It’s everywhere.  Seriously.  I can’t seem to avoid it.  I’ve been doing this blog for about a month and a half now, and I’ve already listened to more noise rock than I had in my previous seventeen years of life combined.  It remains…not for me.  What can I say? I like vocals.  I like happy.  I like stupid, gooey, melodrama.  HEALTH offers me next to none of that.  There’s a little bit of singing every now and then, but it’s mainly used as another layer of sound.  Let’s face it, these tunes are not aimed at me.  

I guess noise rock is just too far out there for me.  Too deep for me, you might say.  And I can live with that.  I’m not going to pretend to like something just because it may make me seem cool or different (I rely on the stuff that I actually like for that.) I’m just going to be perfectly honest and open.  I think noise rock is awful.
