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 ...

Warpaint's debut LP "The Fool" was one of 2010's hidden gems, it deserved so much more praise that I felt it had at the time.

Or maybe it DID get noticed? The past few months have seen a build up to what is arguably the biggest LP release of 2014 so far, as radio play has stepped up a bit, advertising for it is all over the internet, so its been impossible to miss that "its coming"!

Along with a checklist of cool, Flood producing, Radiohead's producer mixing a couple of tracks, and the mighty Chris Cunnigham (doing not only the photos and artwork, but also their videos and filming them docu-style in the making of the album), all the pieces are there, so now its just down to the power of the music.

And this is where Warpaint will catch you out, they are not the band you want them to be, or think they will be. I call them a very "stick-to-their-guns" girl group who don't much care for the now, or be bended by conventions you might hold on progressing from their debut album.

From the opening minute of their debut album, Warpaint where sticks in the mud. As an opening song "Set your arms down" on "The Fool" came across the speakers, it spoke volumes as a "here we are, we don't care, we are doing things our way" kind-of attitude to it. It was a slow, deliberate, atmospheric opening gambit that still rings true on this sequel.

Hence then the review scores around maybe don't really reflect what is going on here. Personal prefferences aside (I prefer the other album as it had better songs) it is very much a screw-you part 2 of slow, atmospheric songs, with no sign of a number 1 sell-out single on it (although "Love is to die" has done well on alternative radio)

So then, no sell-out for Warpaint this time around. Will it come?

This popped up as an Amazon recommendation - one of their best ever. This just grips you and whisks you away. Atmospheric, visceral and standing up to intense listening as well as brilliant mood music, this is well worth a listen.

The good tracks, there are six in my view, are excellent. The other songs are fillers and so a bit inconsistent overall. And not enough material to fill 4 sides of vinyl so you get the band's logo etched on the 4th side! Unlike many reviewers, I prefer this to the Fool.

Warpaint is undoubtedly one of my all time favourite bands, and therefore I had to listen to this album a few times before finally coming to any sort of conclusion. Especially given that Warpaint don't have the most accessible sound.

This album certainly isn't The Fool v2. There aren't nearly as many jangly guitar lines weaving together nor as many vocal harmonies, for instance. Rather, they've very much taken an electronic direction. I wouldn't go so far as to say electronic sounds have replaced the guitar lines. Rather, I think the biggest shortcoming of this album is that, in a lot of the songs, nothing seems to have replaced the guitars. The stronger tracks have managed to replace the guitars with new electronic sounds. Biggy, for instance, has a that nice chunky synth riff.

The first five tracks are no doubt the strongest. Unfortunately, tracks 6-10 seem to disrupt the overall flow of the album. Disco//very is very grinding, Go In is very forgettable, and the same could be said of Feeling Alright and CC. However, they do all have that eerie, sweet, mysterious, ethereal, dark and brooding Warpaint flavour that I've have become so fond of. They just lack substance. The last two tracks sound more like the Warpaint I know and love. They seem to be less boneless than the 5 preceding tracks. They are more structured and have more of Warpaint's gorgeous vocal harmonies. Drive is, in fact, for me one of the high points of the album. Son, as well, manages to combine a guitar sound reminiscent of Radiohead's the bends and Lana Del Rey type vocals, and created something that is so utterly Warpaint.

Although I am slightly disappointed, I think this album will only improve with further listening. Just as The Fool did a few years back.

I like to think I have a really open mind to musical styles. I love dub, drum and bass, electronica, plus artists like Bjork, Agnes Obel, Kate Bush, Bat for Lashes, Juana Molina. Plus my early musical heroes were Bauhaus, Bowie, Joy division and the Banshees. Warpaint somehow combine all of these diverse favourites into something really cool, original, poppy and edgy! with great basslines and strange rhythms. Seeing them at Glastonbury 2014 really sealed my love of the band!

A grinding twisted compelling intro and we are off on the Warpaint path of atmospheric mesmerizing indie. 'Keep It Healthy' is more of the same with their trademark guitar intertwining riffs "i could not believe what I was seeing". Suppose the review should stop here. Song descriptions are not really that important as each number sounds fairly similar to the others but this is not a problem because it is such a good formula that you want to re-listen & re-listen without boredom ever creeping in. Weakest track is probably 'Disco//Very' but even this is fine. Star tracks are the already mentioned 'Keep It Healthy, 'Biggy' with its deep resonant synth motif & melancholic vocals "made of a lover", 'Teese' floats in its dream like qualities "i mean more now i want more now i'm in heaven", 'Feeling Alright' wonderful compelling atmosphere and final track 'Son' is beautifully sung over plaintive piano chords....and difficult me thinks (to sing like this)...yep talented "standing in the garden got my number from the one who says go on". Warpaint are Stella, Jenny, Emily & Theresa and these are stellar gentle immaculate terrific soundscapes. [the 2x12" 33⅓rpm vinyl with 4th side etching plus gatefold sleeve with 4 brilliant inner individual pic sleeves is simply sublime]
