We cannot stop listening to Warpaint. We got text messaged this weekend and it was like "What are you doing?" and the only real response was "just finished Skyping with my sister and now watching Warpaint live videos." Breakup songs, under the bridge songs, punk songs, weird biker guys from upstate New York moving to Baja and jamming on the flanger songs. Whatever. Shit, dudes and dudettes of the internet, why is this so good? Anyway, thanks to Hipster73 and likewordvomit, you can listen to see some new songs from their opening slot on tour with The XX. All that time it took you to get yourself straight/ It's too late. Fuck, total bummer. "Bees" has got their most prog chords and the most jazzy gaudy drum fills. Da-dum-da-dum-da-dum! Like big rubber dominoes smacking over in an empty forest. And you can you hear it. The beginning of "Composure" is listening to Hole screwed. Then the guitar is like listening to not-gross zombies hum. The light is very purple in California.
