Warpaint | Warpaint – LP Review

Review: By David D. Robbins Jr. | Their Bated Breath
Album: Warpaint “Warpaint” (2014)
Release date: January 20 via Rough Trade (US / UK)

If you go to Warpaint’s official website and download the album cover art for their 12-song self-titled sophomore release, you’ll be able to see that the name given to the image is “WarpaintPackshot”. And it’s easy to see why it’s called that if you look at the equal billing the band gives to each member on the new album cover. The same union can be felt in the woozy, lush and romantic free-floating style of the record too. It’s a record created from the bottom up, as the band has said in previous interviews. In other words, unlike their successful 2010 release, “The Fool”, the all-female quartet have taken a more unconventional approach (for them), which is to say, they’re writing songs in more of a traditional fashion. All the band members were involved in the creative process at Joshua Tree, when previously it was the partnership of singer Emily Kokal and bassist Theresa Wayman that led to the band’s first songs.

Warpaint | Love Is To Die

Recently, Warpaint had been playing a handful of new songs in concert during their current European tour. Fans had to scavenge around on YouTube for clips from the U.K. and other places to hear tracks like “Feeling Alright”. Well, now there’s an official streaming audio release, for a new song called “Love Is to Die”. It also comes with an announcement from the band about a new record coming out January 21 via Rough Trade. You can pre-order it now through the label and I-Tunes. – David D. Robbins Jr.

SOFT AND SINISTER | Warpaint

By David D. Robbins Jr. Warpaint “The Fool” (Rough Trade, October 25)

or Warpaint’s opener, it’s switchblades preferred. Their debut LP, “The Fool”, begins with Emily Kokal’s ghostly vocal sighing on “Set Your Arms Down”, a song that embodies the dueling sides of the record — one sweet with love, the other looking to scrap in a back-alley. “Set Your Arms Down” is about walking through fire for passion and settling a fight: “Out on the back porch / You say tonight / We bring our pocket … / Our pocket knives / You want to fight me / You want to fight.” This new record comes with a lot of hype, big expectations and a roster that put an immediately spotlight on the band — bassist Jenny Lee Lindberg is the sister of famed actress and former band member Shannyn Sossamon. It also comes with the attention generated by Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante’s work on the band’s 2008 EP, “Exquisite Corpse”. Oh, and the quality of the music sent the blogosphere into Warpaint euphoria. The band unleashed “Stars”, “Beetles” and a highly-stylized, windblown video for their siren-song, “Elephants”. This time around the band enlists the help of producer Tom Biller, who has worked with Beck and Liars.

THE FOOL | Warpaint

ON THE PATH: Warpaint have carefully built a considerable amount of buzz. For some fans it was hearing the release of Warpaint’s debut EP “Exquisite Corpse”, or seeing the wonderfully shot video for “Elephants”, or hearing the single “Stars”. There’s a bit of reluctance from some reviewers or music fans to just give in and enjoy the music when a band seems to hit every PR button so perfectly, and includes the sister of beautiful actress Shannyn Sossamon playing bass. But really, this band has done nothing but make pretty good music. (Including a decent cover of David Bowie’s “Ashes to Ashes” you can hear at Stereogum.) Emily Kokal’s voice is hypnotic, and Warpaint make songs with an atmospheric quality, gauzy and dreamily romantic. The current lineup is Kokal and Theresa Wayman on guitar and vocals, Jenny Lee Lindberg on bass, and Stella Mozgawa on drums. Their new LP “The Fool” will be released October 26, 2010. Until then, listen to their lead single “Undertow”. Note: Read more about the band and see the video for “Elephants” from an archived Their Bated Breath post. Tracklisting for the new album: 1. Set Your Arms Down; 2. Warpaint; 3. Undertow; 4. Bees; 5. Shadows; 6. Composure; 7. Baby; 8. Majesty; 9. Lissie’s Heart Murmur. — David D. Robbins Jr.
