Undoubtedly one of the best rock bands playing, it's a treat to see Warpaint live. These sessions, recorded cleanly and shot nicely, are the next best thing. Warpaint plays four tracks, including "Burgundy," (above) one of the quieter numbers from their Exquisite Corpse, originally recorded with a drummer with considerably chops than Stella Mozgawa, and the track is propelled with her as its backbone. These videos premiered on the homepage of YouTube if that gives you an idea of the reach they're capable of. Pretty sure the last premiere there was the trailer for Moneyball or something. Warpaint's The Fool is getting a deluxe reissue 9/26, pick it up if you have not, it will get you through the cold months ahead.
