In my previous blog regarding Oprah's earlier show in May with Brian Weiss, I mentioned that I had been greatly helped by undergoing several past life regressions.

Partnered with the Canadian electronic duo Crystal Castles, HEALTH recorded one of last year’s sharpest singles, the disorienting, Orwellian “Crimewave.” Left to their own devices, though, the Los Angeles group is more of a conventional noise-rock band than that dark dance track suggests, heavy on rusty guitars and . . .
