War! What is it good for?

You must know how it works by now. If not, allow us to remind you; a new band start generating some buzz, we miss it completely, then six months down the line we catch on and tell you about it as if you’ve never heard of them (when of course, by then, even Mildred who lives opposite the Post Office knows about them).

With that in mind, allow us to introduce you to Warpaint.

Four young ladies from LA, Warpaint have caused quite a stir with their debut EP, the spooky Exquisite Corpse. Over six strung out tracks – the highlight of which is the amazing ‘Elephants’ – they recall Mazzy Star and various slacker bands from the ’90s, yet somehow it all sounds fresh enough to encourage repeat listens. Worth checking out (six months late).

FACT: Actress Shannyn Sossaman used to be their drummer.

  1. Thanks for posting that. I hadn't heard of them either.

  2. You're very welcome. The EP is great if you can find it. It's all "available" online, m

  3. Saw these at The Great Escape recently. Very good.
