Biography

WARPAINT is a Los Angeles based quartet comprised of Emily Kokal (vocals/guitar), Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass/vocals), Theresa Wayman (guitar/vocals), and Stella Mozgawa (drums). To say that this follow-up is "highly anticipated" is an understatement considering the reception that their debut received when it was released at the end of 2010, and the excitement at their recent sold-out ...

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).

This is, hands down, my favorite album of 2010.

"Undertow" - adds a groovy feel to the sound and I love the way Jenny strums her bass like a guitar.
Rich Latta
Warpaint definitely has a unique style and sound to them.

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.

Four cooler-than-you girls, three from Cali and and one from (I'm guessing) England, took the latter part of a decade to perfect their shoegaze-meets-prog sound, the result being their debut full-length, The Fool. (One of the gals, drummer Stella Mozgawa, is new. Actress Shannyn Sossamon was the original drummer, followed by a number of stand-ins.) The longstanding core trio of friends, Emily Kokal (vocals, guitar), Theresa Wayman (guitars, vocals) and Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass, vocals), are the true California girls, Wayman being the bashful gal who offed herself in The Rules of Attraction and Lindberg the sister of Sossamon. Oh, and I think Kokal dated someone famous for a while - maybe a Red Hot Chili Pepper. So yes, these are cool girls who ooze charisma and stage presence and make very watchable music videos (check out the super cool "Stars" for proof). But who cares about actresses and videos and sisters; can the Warpaints make albums that are worth buying and listening to, or are they just good on paper and screen?

Well, for starters, this music on The Fool isn't simple stuff. These girls aren't The Long Blondes, The Dum Dum Girls or The Vivian Girls. Warparint are heavily influenced by a number of the best bands from the 1980s - the ones who made big, dense productions. Bands like Cocteau Twins, The Sundays, Kate Bush, Dead Can Dance and even The Cure, amongst others, come to mind as The Fool's nine tracks pass by. The songs, all made to set hazy midnight moods, rely heavily on their constant drone and powerful vocals, which, in a way, often remind of The Bends-era Thom Yorke. Oh, and sometimes Bjork, depending on who sings (Kokal is the lead, but everyone keeps a mic close by).
