Warpaint Acoustic Session

I'm not sure what makes this video so intoxicating, but Warpaint sure does give me the vapors. Recently signed to Rough Trade, this Los Angeles lady quartet is in the studio recording their first LP with producer Tom Biller who has produced Beck, Karen O, and Liars.

Their Exquisite Corpse EP was mixed by John Frusciante of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and weaves "majestic guitars, hypnotic vocals, and driving post-punk rhythms into gorgeous, sprawling songs that skirt the line between the soundscapes of psychedelia/shoegaze, the haunting intimacy of folk, and rock's primal heaviness."

You can catch Warpaint in Austin on February 24 at The Parish, or during SXSW next month. Do512 is hosting them at "The Big One" on Saturday, March 20 along with Holy Fuck, The Hood Internet and more. Click here to RSVP.
