Warpaint, The Fool [2010]

The Fool, Warpaint's debut LP (they've already released an EP, Exquisite Corpse, produced by former Red Hot Chili Pepper John Frusciante), is out today.  There's nothing as kinetic as "Elephants" (from the EP); instead, the band paints a hypnotic, moody, and pensive tapestry of sound across these nine songs.  Heavy on bass and dreamy atmospherics, Warpaint do not really sound like any other active band.  Imagine a female-fronted Radiohead circa "There, There" with emphasis on interwoven guitars and bass.  Mind-altered college kids are gonna love this one.

You can stream the entire thing via the Hype Machine.  Or, ya know, here:
