Health&Beauty is the name under which Brian J Sulpizio has released music since 2003. The current line-up of the group which featured on NO SCARE, the band’s most recent album which is out now via Wichita Recordings, has been playing together since 2012. Pianist Ben Boye (a constant collaborator since 2009, who also plays with Will Oldham, Angel Olsen and many others), drummer Frank Rosaly (a regular collaborator with Peter Brotzmann and many other jazz and experimental music greats) along with bassist Anton Hatwich also made up the band on Ryley Walker’s Primrose Green. The band line-up for the forthcoming tour is currently being finalised.

NO SCARE is the most euphoric listening experience presented yet in the band’s catalogue, where darkness and light can’t help but complement each other in the short comedy of the human experience. The record is available on LP, CD & DigitalHERE and the tracklist is as follows:

1) Back To The Place
2) Wartime
3) Asunción & Dayanara
4) No Scare
5) Beyond Beyoncé
6) Im Yr Baby (for Aaron Swartz)
7) Riverside Cemetery
