Review of The Heavy Blinkers – Health (Independent)

HeavyBlinkersHealthHighArtMore than a decade in the making, The Heavy Blinkers, Nova Scotia’s finest purveyors of pop music, return with the wonderful Health. Wearing a Beach Boys Smile-era influence proudly on his sleeves, Jason MacIsaac is the songwriting genius behind the band. Like Brian Wilson before him, MacIsaac prefers to weave his magic behind the songs instead of behind the microphone, leaving Health’s vocal duties up to the likes of Jenn Grant, Melanie Stone and more. Flushed out by strings, horns and more, the exuberant, unadulterated joy running through Health is simply magnificent.
