Warpaint The Fool on 2LP
Warpaint, the all-girl quartet from Los Angeles, 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.
2010's The Fool is their utterly mesmeric debut full-length album on Rough Trade Records and follow-up to their 2009 EP Exquisite Corpse. The Fool was produced 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).
"...Warpaint construct mysterious songs that pair the rhythmic chug of Pylon with the otherworldly eeriness of Throwing Muses. - Rolling Stone
"Dreamy shoegaze melodies are paired with post-punk dissonance and fueled by the bandmates' pure magnetism and instrumental chops." - Paste
