This week’s recommendation, an album I just bought last week: the latest from Warpaint, the self-titled Warpaint (listen on Rdio or Spotify). Standout track: “Biggy”.
Atmospheric, haunting, but with some edge & some texture to keep it from going down too easy. Wikipedia says, “Warpaint have been compared to Cocteau Twins, Joni Mitchell, and Siouxsie and the Banshees”, and quote NME describing their style as “Intermittently emerging from plaintive moods into harder rocking . . . expansive, lushly-harmonic psych-rock songs”.
