HEALTH CARE: “U 2 Me” b/w “Lies!”: 7”

This is a two-song teaser from Health Care, the brainchild of Dan Bush, formerly of Thee Makeout Party. The approach is in such lo-fi fashion that it distorts the lines of power pop and twee with searing vocals and strategic use of unconventional rock instruments like the glockenspiel and a farfisa organ. Nevertheless, the songs are quite endearing and could be much more memorable if not for their brevity/quantity. I’ll be paying attention if a full-length drops.
