SXSW DOWNLOAD: HEALTH - In Heat (Javelin Remix)
Javelin kind of pulled the short stick on this one, saddled with the unenviable task of revamping "In Heat," Get Color's bruising, grating, noisebomb of an opener. Dudes take the difficult source material in stride though, finding a sweet spot somewhere between old school b-boy fodder and squishy nu-funk synth twinkling. HEALTH are sitting out the Austin melee this year, but Javelin are in the home stretch of an eleven-show marathon tour through the capital. Your list of the last few chances to see them, Austinites, also means the last time we have to write some version of "after the jump" this week. Everybody wins!
