MP3 At 3PM: Warpaint

warpaintPrepare to be hypnotized by Warpaint. No, not the Black Crowes album. This Warpaint is three girls and a guy drummer from L.A who are transfixing audiences on the West Coast with ethereal vocals, haunting melodies and oddly distorted guitars and electronics. Warpaint’s Exquisite Corpse (out September 22 on Manimal Vinyl) manages to combine folk, psychedelic and rock influences onto one blissfully mystical, dreamy EP. Check out “Elephants” and “Billie Holiday” (which might sound kind of familiar).
