Warpaint – “Biggy”

Warpaint already dropped "Love Is To Die," the big and percussion-heavy first single from their upcoming self-titled album, and now they have a more subdued one to share. "Biggy" carries gentle cymbals and brushed drum beats; it's an eerier track, and a good reminder that they've got Flood AND Nigel Godrich producing this thing. More »

Martina Topley-Bird (Feat. Mark Lanegan & Warpaint) – “Crystalised” (The xx Cover) Video

Martina Topley-Bird has joined Mark Lanegan and Warpaint to release this cover for the xx's "Crystalised." You'll remember Topley-Bird for vital vocal contributions to Tricky's Maxinquaye. It's a fitting cover because you could argue that if there wasn't a Maxinquaye there may not have been an xx. Lanegan provides some smoky vocals as well,… More »

Report & Photos From FYF Fest 2012

Ever since I was old enough to complain, my dad took great pleasure in the act of dragging my always-resistant ass to music festivals. A summer full of glorious music for him meant a summer full of unstifled groans from me. His taste in music back then -- folk, folk, and nothing but folk --… More »

Warpaint – “Warpaint” Video

Underwater! Director Ted Newsome has this to say: I have always wanted to shoot a video for Warpaint, so I was excited when they asked me to submit treatments.

Much in the spirit of our inaugural Remixtape this month's collection features reworkings from both in-demand prostitutes and adept indie rock knob twiddlers. Honorable mention to… More »

The album that will host it in properly recorded form is The Fool, the band is the all-female L.A. quartet Warpaint, one… More »
