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 album has had (very) mixed reviews and it's taken some time for it to sink in with me since I think even it's admirer's would admit it is hardly packed with hooks! However I've found it to be a definite grower that can be summed up as; "bass heavy post-punk with wispy shoe-gazer vocals". The post-punk bit I like being a real fan of the genre and especially those late70's/early 80's bands that inspired by reggae pushed the bass to the fore of their sound (think 'PiL', 'Delta 5', 'Au Pairs', 'Slits', 'Young Marble Giants', 'Joy Division', 'A Certain Ratio', 23 Skidoo', 'The Fall' and so on). The bass driven grooves are embellished with flecks of guitar and synth with memorable synth-riffing on the single, "Biggy". The vocals are more problematic being ethereal and intangible in the main, just like the early 90's shoe-gazer bands, thereby not really doing the music justice. Nevertheless the best track (by far) hints at a solution to the vocal problem, "Disco//Very" which contains excellent chanted, slightly discordant vocal harmonies and a taut, moody groove --- more of this sort of thing in the future would be welcome.

Therefore a solid sophomore album; a slight improvement over their 1st in my opinion despite the manifest lack of true originality (hard to achieve these days!) and it is somewhat brave (or foolish in this Spotify-age) to put out an album that is so inaccessible without considerable effort on the part of the listener.

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.

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.

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.
