Warpaint – “Undertow”

A recent staple of an increasingly compelling live show, "Undertow" has already inspired a rhapsodic "look out for this song/record/band" post with only a marginally watchable, live fan-clip affixed as an exhibit. The album that will host it in properly recorded form is The Fool, the band is the all-female L.A. quartet Warpaint, one of… More »

Warpaint, Lewis & Clarke, A Place To Bury Strangers Cover Bowie

When we posted Vivian Girls' cover of “John, I’m Only Dancing," I mentioned it was part of the 2-disc We Were So Turned On: A Tribute To David Bowie, a compilation that also includes MGMT, Chairlift, Rainbow Arabia, and enough other people to necessitate two CDs (including Duran Duran). You'll get a better sense of… More »

FYF Fest 2010 In Photos

This past weekend L.A. hosted the heavily (and according to various reports, perhaps overly) attended Fuck Yeah Festival. Great lineup, though apparently not the most easily navigated festival experience, according to our forces on the ground. We sent photographers Graeme Flegenheimer and Patrick Collier, who suffered through $4 water bottle prices and severe crowding to… More »

Stereogum’s 40 Best New Bands Of 2010

With fall on the horizon, we're escaping a slow summer and shifting into that final, fertile phase of the music year's release cycle. Which makes it a ripe time to get some perspective on the year, in terms of the big records from past favorites, and here, the bands that have introduced themselves as new… More »

Warpaint – “Undertow” Live Video

The ladies of Warpaint give good press shot, look great on video; facts some listeners hold against musical projects, or at least facts that make some listeners hold their bars higher. So far the Los Angeles quartet, who have confirmed the technically terrific drummer Stella Mozgawa as a fixture on the drum throne, have offered… More »

Lollapalooza 2010 Saturday: Green Day Is For The Children

Even if you're not a fan (I'm not) you gotta give Green Day credit, first for introducing Lookout! to mall-punks back in the day, later for showcasing political awareness on an MTV-sized scale. Now middle-aged dads, with armfuls of Grammys and a Broadway pedigree, they commanded the biggest crowd at Lolla so far this weekend. More »

SXSW 2010: Wednesday In Photos

Here's a tip if you're going to one of these industry festival type things: If IAMSOUND is having a party, you should attend that party. Just like this past CMJ, the L.A.-based imprint owned their night, pulling together an eclectic lineup that showcased the right bands, all having a moment: Scott already posted some videoMore »

Yeasayer/Warpaint @ Natural History Museum, Los Angeles 2/5/10

L.A.'s Natural History Museum invited Yeasayer to headline their most recent First Fridays event, because Yeasayer love playing museums. Like that Guggenheim show, the band was paired with some ascendant local talent -- in October it was Brooklyn's Tanlines, Friday night saw the slot filled by the previously loved ladies (and man) of Warpaint. Photographer… More »

New Warpaint Video – “Elephants”

Slow motion's a speed that works well for Warpaint, a trio of L.A. ladies and a drummer guy trading in gauzy, darkened post-punk hypnotica. Their video for "Elephants" matches framerates with the dreamy Lynchian clip they delivered for the quietly anxious "Stars," but here they're dressed in Stevie Nicks lace scattered across a bare performance… More »

New Warpaint Video – “Stars”

You could compare Warpaint to Au Revoir Simone for other reasons than being a female trio with fragile melodies, but the Los Angeles crew do something darker. It's sorta there in the differences between their names. For instance, David Lynch had nothing to do with the dreamy Adam Harding and Burke Roberts-directed video for "Stars,"… More »
