MP3 Monday: Warpaint

These girls don't just look cool. Warpaint 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 channeling something truly otherworldly, and mystical. Recorded in LA, The Fool was produced by Tom Biller (Beck, Karen O, Liars), with further mixes from Andrew Weatherall (New Order, Primal Scream, Bjork) and Adam Samuels (John Frusciante, Daniel Lanois).

The all-girl quartet from Los Angeles has toured incessantly over the last twelve months; with standout performances at CMJ and SXSW. They have also shared the stage with Band of Horses, Yeasayer, Javelin, The Walkmen and The xx.
