"Fucking Gorgeous"
Warpaint is a jammy, psychedelic dreamy riffage indie all-girl group from Los Angeles.
The band weaves intricate guitar lines, hypnotic vocals, and driving post-punk rhythms into gorgeous,
sprawling songs that skirt the line between the soundscapes of psychedelia and intimacy.

Band founded in Los Angeles, March 2007.



Review by la-underground.net:
Short Review
”Fucking gorgeous”. That was overheard while Warpaint opened with a
bold and utterly beautiful set of post-rock ethereality. . . .
Musically . . … it’s a bit unexpected.
While probably well-studied in the art of Blonde Redhead, Jawbox, and Sonic Youth
these ladies have a rhythmic feel and style all their own.
And although the band may get some heat for the celebrity factor surrounding them (which we’ll avoid mentioning),
we can safely say they don’t sound like a “Hollywood” band at all.
Thank goodness.

Another Review: New York Times

Onstage, Warpaint’s disarmingly authentic package can shake a room into a dance frenzy, while simultaneously holding it in a trance-like dreamworld. Playing to many captivated audiences, Warpaint has opened for The xx, Yeasayer, Black Heart Procession, and The Slits to name a few. Warpaint took on a hectic 2009 fall touring schedule including a series of shows opening for Brooklyn-based trio School of Seven Bells, followed by numerous performances at CMJ Music Marathon, a series of headlining shows, and an opening spot for Band of Horses.

Various Members
Warpaint was founded in 2007 by Emily Kokal, Theresa Wayman, Jennifer Lindberg. They played live with Shannyn Sossamon (2007), David Orlando (2008-09), Josh Klinghoffer (2009), Michael Quinn of Corridor (Sept-Nov 2009) and Stella Mozgawa (currently) on drums.
Occasionally Warpaint got joined by Jacob Bercovici on keys and/or accordion, by Michael Quinn on cello, by Lilah Skye on backing vocals.

Releases

Exquisite Corpse 2009
Their first EP Exquisite Corpse has been re-released through Manimal Vinyl in Ocober 2009.
A video of "Elephants" can be viewed here on Youtube
you can find a copy of Exquisite Corpse at:
Amazon

Here’s a list of people that were involved in the realisation:
* Shannyn Sossamon (drums on ‘Stars’, ‘Elephants’, ‘Beetles’)
* David Orlando (drums on ‘Burgundy’)
* Josh Klinghoffer (drums on ‘Billie Holiday’ + guitar on ‘Krimson’)
* John Frusciante (EP mixing + mellotron on ‘Billie Holiday’)
* Adam Samuels (EP mixing)
* Jacob Bercovici (EP production + mixing of ‘Krimson’)

In early 2009, their self-released debut EP “Exquisite Corpse” soared straight to #1 on legendary Los Angeles Amoeba Records’ local artists chart. By September 2009, Manimal Vinyl reissued it on CD and vinyl, complete with a new bonus track, ‘Krimson’. Mixed by John Frusciante (Red Hot Chili Peppers), the EP successfully captures the band’s sonic textures and playful dynamism that they’re notorious for creating in a live setting. With a buzz already in the air, Warpaint is now beginning to stir the masses with praise in the US and abroad. Dazed and Confused calls “Exquisite Corpse” “a collection of magical psychedelia drifting over sublime moments of raw melody courtesy of the three free ethereal vocalists,” while The Independent adds, “They make a quite lovely sound with dreamy vocals, off-kilter hazy guitars.”

The Fool 2010
The band moved to Portland, Oregon, for the recording of their new album (Dec - Feb),
to be released by Rought Trade Records in late Fall 2010.
The band worked in the studio with producer Tom Biller on their
first full-length album titled The Fool,
which came out on Rough Trade Records on October 25.

    Saw them on Jools a few days ago... great performance. Stella, the drummer, grabbed my attention right away, and the others eventually captivated me. Oddly intoxicating. I see Stella joined the band near the end of the album's production... does anyone know if she played on any tracks? Can't seem to find credits online...
