MT. OSSA
We make music in a way that makes us happy. We are writers, watchers, painters and listeners. We come together to bring our ideas into the light. MT. OSSA is our music and we are proud of it. People have called our music anything from surf rock and psych-pop, to dream disco and soul fuzz; we’re okay with that. We’re okay with presenting to the observer an opportunity to imagine and experience. Ever expanding, and limitless is who we are. Loving what we do is not hard. Color and light and shapes and terrestrial bodies are all things that inspire us, but our love for music is what drives us to be MT. OSSA
Gothic Tropic

"Los Angeles trio Gothic Tropic introduces some hard edges to the playful world of psych-pop. Gothic Tropic finds inspiration from high energy afro-cuban beats, and exuberant guitars. The brainchild of Cecilia Della Peruti, Gothic Tropic keeps the vibe measured and darkly bizarre with a unique lead guitar/vocal style that recalls catchy elements of pre-punk 70s acts such as Television, Captain Beefheart, and Can. Bassist Daniel Denton (Metric) and drummer Liv Marisco (Cold War Kids) have pushed a quick and steady evolution in Gothic Tropic's short history, growing from a collection of Della Peruti's loop station jams to one of Los Angeles' more exciting new acts in just a matter of months. Get a copy of their debut "Awesome Problems EP" and enjoy the lo-fi while you can." -BMI

"Like Fool's Gold, and Vampire Weekend, the new L.A. trio Gothic Tropic finds inspiration in world beats and exuberant guitars. The brainchild of Cecilia Della Peruti, who for the past two years has played with Rumspringa, Gothic Tropic takes a playful, lo-fi approach to the psych-pop on its four-song "Awesome Problems" EP, with guitar lines that poke and tickle and beats that quicken the pulse. Della Peruti, who's teamed up with bassist Daniel Denton (Never at Night) and drummer Liv Marsico (Cold War Kids, and Hot Hot Heat), got an assist from guitarist Sam Lopez Jr. (TRC, and Tapioca and the Flea) on the EP, whose rough edges are anything but a vibe-killer." -Kevin Bronson, Buzzbands LA

HEALTH are the new frontier of noise rock. Formed in 2005, HEALTH self-recorded their debut album over the course of 9 months at Los Angeles D.I.Y. venue The Smell, birthing an urgent and extraordinary album which seethed with ghostly, epic pop and spurts of chaotic noise. Their shows grew wilder, kids danced & moshed, blogs freaked out, critics raved, and everyone wondered how in God’s name HEALTH was going to follow it up. While the anticipation continued to build, HEALTH released a critically-acclaimed remix record HEALTH//DISCO, toured with the likes of Crystal Castles, Nine Inch Nails, and Of Montreal and played over 420 shows!

In April of 2009, HEALTH emerged with their first new single since 2007: “DIE SLOW” received immediate accolades from Pitchfork & NME, with the effects rippling across their DIE SLOW THROUGH EUROPE tour, resulting in a near-riot in Eastern Europe. The song’s infectious fusion of noise and dance was the most fully-formed and undeniably rad piece of music from HEALTH yet. And it only served to rile up their fans more. The new full-length was desperately needed.

On September 8th 2009, HEALTH answer the call and release their second album GET COLOR. Recorded in an especially gnarly part of Lincoln Heights, L.A, GET COLOR is an exuberant proclamation of noise, rock and electronic splendor. It’s a celebration of sound; pretty, harsh, soft and basked in a blanket of ethereal vocals. GET COLOR is the manifesto HEALTH have been promising since their inception. HEALTH are the band. GET COLOR is the record. NOW is the time.

Two years after releasing the revered noise/dance record HEALTH//DISCO, HEALTH return to the remix realm with DISCO2 on June 22, 2010 on Lovepump United Records.

Curated and produced by HEALTH, DISCO2 features the epic noise jams of GET COLOR remixed by electronic luminaries Tobacco, Crystal Castles, Salem, Javelin, and Gold Panda (among others), morphing 2009’s GET COLOR into an electronic masterpiece.

DICSCO2 leads off with the killer new HEALTH single “USA BOYS”, mixed by legendary producer Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode). HEALTH have turned the dancefloor filthy again. It’s going to be a noisy summer.
