Warpaint- Warpaint
:: February 17, 2014 :: by Kirk Windus


RIYL: HAIM, Broken Bells, Volcano Choir

Reccomended Tracks:

Track 2- Keep It Healthy

Track 3- Love Is To Die

Track 6- Teese

There’s a reason that Warpaint’s self-titled made all kinds of most anticipated albums of 2014 lists. The female indie rockers have some serious chops.

The album’s not ridden with hooks, but it's easy to see that the band fully intended to create something that in no way conforms to current pop music trends. The record takes the listener on a sonic journey through spacey synths and ghastly vocals. The mix is incredible, and the layers upon layers of sound manage to create something both chaotic and comprehensive.

If you’re looking for something to sing in the car Warpaint not be the place to look, but that doesn’t take anything away from record. Warpaint is more than just an album. It’s an experience. Meant to be digested as a comprehensive work, the songs work together to create an absolutely hypnotizing 50 minutes.

Even Earl Sweatshirt wants to work with the band.  And while it may not be the group’s catchiest or most captivating effort, Warpaint isn’t a record you’ll easily forget.
