SUBVERT REALITY.
QUEER THE SYSTEM.
NEVER LOOK BACK.

Treasured lyrical confusion became my now-tired alias. It was like the best Prince lyric Prince never wrote.

These are my erratic musings. They come in waves and then not at all.

I realize I’m a bit behind here, but I only discovered this incredible band after they played at a Factory Party in Calgary a few weeks ago. I just wrote up paragraphs of absolute garbage on them, rambling with excitement (an excerpt is below), but this official description will do them more justice than my hyperactive exclamations ever could:
Warpaint are an all girl quartet from Los Angeles. They weave 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.
Let me tell you one thing. You have to hear this band. You have to watch this video, download all three of their songs. I couldn’t pick. Visit their myspace; buy their EP Exquisite Corpse… do all these things. You just have to. Diamond in the rough. I’m in love. Did I make myself clear?
Warpaint - Elephants
Warpaint - Billie Holiday
Warpaint - Beetles

I am eagerly awaiting their full length LP, which unlike their previous release on Manimal Vinyl will be coming our way via the increasingly popular Rough Trade records, home to bands like The Strokes and Islands.
