Los Angeles, California, United States (2004 – present)

Warpaint is a psychedelic rock band which formed in 2004 in Los Angeles, California, United States. The band consists of Theresa Wayman (vocals, guitar), Emily Kokal (vocals, guitar), Jenny Lee Lindberg (vocals, bass), and Stella Mozgawa (drums). The band’s original drummer, Shannyn Sossamon, left the band in 2008. The band had multiple temporary drummers until Mozgawa joined in 2009.

The band weaves intricate guitar lines, hypnotic vocals, and driving post-punk rhythms into gorgeous, sprawling songs that skirt the line between the soundscapes of psychedelia and intimacy. The group has gone through many line-up changes, including actress Shannyn Sossamon and Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer.

In early 2009, their self-released debut EP “Exquisite Corpse” soared straight to #1 on legendary Los Angeles Amoeba Records’ local artists chart. By September 2009, Manimal Vinyl reissued it on CD and vinyl, complete with a new bonus track, ‘Krimson’. Mixed by John Frusciante (Red Hot Chili Peppers), the EP successfully captures the band’s sonic textures and playful dynamism that they’re notorious for creating in a live setting. With a buzz already in the air, Warpaint is now beginning to stir the masses with praise in the US and abroad.

    I often wondered what happened to Luscious Jackson.

    The gig at Cirque Royal didn't fly. How come? Too many old guys frontstage? Sunday night blues among those attending? Not enough jamming? It was nice, but... And the singing was never any better. Also, I liked Theresa's VERY DEEP bass motive at the end. Probably my expectations were too high. I have not written them off yet, not by any stretch. Going to see Sleater-Kinney on the 21st...

    They spent too much time on the S/T, it was just over-thought out, over-produced, over everything. Focusing on the wrong areas. When they jam they are at their finest, so the quick recording and release of the EP and the few to follow this year should put them back on track.

    as a huge warpaint fan, did no one else think their S/T from last year fell WAY short? this comment sums up my feelings: " it's bland, sounds like a demo album, and loses any charm the band had with earlier songs. the vocals are all over the place and rarely on key."

    CrimsonHorizon is spot on. Female Radiohead (albeit minus their electronic inclinations) is exactly how I would characterize Warpaint

    No Way Out (Redux) sounds really good. Hyped!

    This album was like my second favorite album of last year (2014), right behind Venetian Snares 'My Love Is A Bulldozer'. I MUST say 'Warpaint' definitely impressed me and stepped up their mark. I didn't expect it to blow away so many anticipated albums of 2014 for me.
