Crimewave (Crystal Castles vs. David Wolf) by Health

Q: Perhaps you have picked up the HEALTH//DISCO album from, yes, the band named Health?

A: No? Then read this statement from Health:
“This is not your typical remix album.... Every artist on the record was hand selected and contacted by us with the hope of combining our sounds and musical ideas with those of electronic artists we admire, several of them doing remixes for the first time. It is not about market saturation or crossover appeal. It is purely about the music, and we are proud of it. This is an album, and meant to be listened to as one. The goal of this record is not only to present all these songs at once, but also to ensure that they are not forgotten in the constantly updating, content hungry internet music world.”

Intrigued? I know I would be.
