Editorial Reviews

Warpaint weave intricate guitar lines,hypnotic vocals and driving post punk rhythms into gorgeous, sprawling songs that skirt the line between psychedelia and intimacy. Both live and on record, Warpaint sound like they're channelling something truly otherworldly, mystical. The Fool is their utterly mesmeric debut full-length album roduced and mixed by Tom Biller (Liars, Jon Brion, Sean Lennon) in Los Angeles, with further mixes from Andrew Weatherall (Bjork, My Bloody Valentine, Primal Scream) and Adam Samuels (John Frusciante, Daniel Lanois).

Warpaints' track "Undertow" has been placed on so many music blogs over the past few months that a referral to the Anti Monopolies Commission would have been in order. Rough Trades' further decision to stream this new album on the huge music blog aggregator Hype Machine means that this album is well trailed and on the evidence of the music brilliantly constructed and produced.

Warpaint are female rock group from Los Angeles comprising Emily Kokal (vocals/guitar), Theresa Wayman (vocals/guitar), Jenny Lee Lindberg (bassist/vocals), and Stella Mozgawa (drums/keyboards). "The Fool" is their debut album hot on the heels of 2009s EP "Exquisite corpse" and a very nice separate cover of David Bowie's "Ashes to Ashes". This band defies stereotypes and "The Fool" is no LA blast of summer fun like the joyous recent product of their contemporaries Best Coast, indeed you sense that P. J. Harvey LPs may have been strewn around the recording studio.

While Warpaint smear their influences on their sleeves the fact remains that they are pretty much impeccable as sources. Combine this with the fact they inhabit a space which is not sardine packed with bands and their musical slant is wholly intoxicating. The aforementioned single "Undertow" is jammed full of nuance that hints at Nirvana and the Pixies and yet is distinctive enough to stand as a great song in its own right. The style is very sweet and yet has a icy skeletal quality to it which makes them a much darker prospect that say Beach House, but at the same time both bands still retain a dreamy pop quality. Opener "Set your arms down" confirms this and steadily builds through a tidal bass to five minutes plus of glorious atmosphere psychedelica, jam packed with ghostly vocals and tight harmonies.

I came across Warpaint's music at the NPR music website & immediately fell under their spell. The band is all female and has a dark neo-psychedelic sound with ethereal three part harmony vocals.

A Los Angeles quartet dealing in sparse, atmospheric art rock, Warpaint originally consisted of the highly regarded screen actress Shannyn Sossamon and her sister Jenny Lee Lindberg (on drums & bass respectively), as well as Emily Kokal and Theresa Wayman on vocal and guitar. Sossamon left due to conflicts with her acting schedule and was replaced by Stella Mozgawa. There songs often establish a meandering, atmospheric guitar grooves that are a sharp contrast to the their delicate otherworldly vocal arrangements. Unfortunately "The Fool" wasn't released until the end of October, so this worthy album wasn't included on the notable 2010 music lists of many cultural opinion makers. "The Fool" did make the Top 10 Albums of 2010 at my own humble music blog at the Music Banter forum. NPR also gave "The Fool" an honorable mention on it's year end summary.

You may also want to check out Warpaint's earlier self produced EP, "Exquisite Corpse" which contains the spellbinding song "Billie Holiday" which is my favorite Warpaint song to date.

I've been told that "The Fool" doesn't quite capture the power of their mesmerizing live performances, so I'll have to buy the ticket and check this band out when and if they make a tour stop in my town. Meanwhile, I can't say enough good things about Warpaint's debut album on Rough Trade. I've played it constantly on my WMP jukebox and Zune portable player over the past two months.

Warpaint - The Fool (2010)

The creepiest music isn't necessarily the scariest, but rather the most mysterious. The unknown, the uncertain....that's what's REALLY scary...Warpaint are amazingly good at creating original, atmospheric music that is dreamy and haunting. I wouldn't necessarily call it scary but it can certainly be creepy and mysterious. Warpaint favor crisp, Cure-esque guitar tones, both clean and crystalline. One can easily compare them to other purveyors of lush, roomy atmospherics and ethereal vocals such as the Cocteau Twins and Bat for Lashes, but THE FOOL manages to have its own sound and flavor that won't be mistaken for anyone else. This band is very, very good and this album stands as one of my favorites if not my very favorite release of 2010.

I would rate each and every one of these songs five stars:

"Set Your Arms Down" - The album slowly creeps to life with a contemplative bass line and ethereal vocals and the song continues to build from there.

"Warpaint" - Bassist Jenny Lee Lindberg lays down sophisticated, exquisite rhythms on her instrument that would sound just as good on a 6-string electric guitar; she's a key component to the band's sound. This is one of the more hard-hitting tracks on the album. This music is exquisite and most definitely mysterious.

"Undertow" - adds a groovy feel to the sound and I love the way Jenny strums her bass like a guitar. This song is really sexy.

"Bees" - is dominated by strange, angular guitar figures and shimmering, dancing ghosts. Weird tune.

"Shadows" - A dark and lonely acoustic guitar pushes out a rhythm along with spooky pianos. The drums kick in midway to give the cage a good rattling.
