Stuck In My Head: Warpaint – “Krimson”

Warpaint – “Krimson

Dark, moody and melodramatic. Just the way I like it these days, so be forewarned. I’m a mood. And LA-based Warpaint fits the bill.  It’s good medicine.  And there’s more coming with their first full length album due out on Rough Trade later this year. Until then, you can get your fix from their Exquisite Corpse EP. Let’s all mainline it together, shall we? Then collapse in a heap to contemplate our angst. It will be cathartic, I’m sure. But right now I need a little room to sway.

SXSW Preview: Warpaint

Warpaint – “Elephants

I’ve really been enjoying this recent (mostly) girl band discovery from Los Angeles, Warpaint. And by the looks of their SXSW schedule, so is everyone else.  Seeing that they are on the showcase line up for the biggest tastemakers on the Internet – including WOXY, Aquarium Drunkard, My Old Kentucky Blog, Pitchfork and Gorilla vs Bear – I’d say the future looks bright for this group who’s debut LP will be released later this year.
