Just in time for his tour with Sleigh Bells -- which kicks off tomorrow at the Clubhouse in Tempe, Arizona -- Travis Egedy, aka Pictureplane, gets a little love and viral video exposure from Lovepump United labelmates HEALTH. The Los Angeles dudes did a clean, flattering version of "Goth Star" at a recent show in Moscow, adding some heaviness to Egedy's slow-motion jam from his 2009 Lovepump United debut, Dark Rift. HEALTH vocalist Jake Duzsik's soft coo is a dead ringer for Egedy's sunny vocals, and while the Fleetwood Mac sample is definitely present, drummer BJ Miller adds another dimension with live beats.
