We at Rough Trade are happy to announce the signing of LA quartet Warpaint.Grab two Warpaint tracks for free above.
Warpaint weave intricate guitar lines,hypnotic vocals and driving post punk rhythms into gorgeous, sprawling songs that skirt the line between psychedelia and intimacy.
At the core of the band are founding members Emily Kokal, Theresa Wayman and Jenny Lee Lindberg who formed the band in 2007.
"We are all very excited about being involved with such a unique and inspiring group and we welcome them to the label".
A 6 track EP Exquisite Corpse will be available in the USA this October and UK & Europe in November through Manimal Vinyl. Rough Trade will be releasing a full length album next year.
Akron/Family's ATP NY set was their last "area" appearance. They write...
In the midst of this amazing tour we stopped off on the Borscht Belt to participate in the Flaming Lips curated ATP. It was a great weekend with one of the most mind/body/soul altering performances we have ever seen by the Boredoms. We also got to participate in Oneida's 10.5 hour performance on Sunday. We had the coveted early slot at noon.A video of that, another live clip and all tour dates are below...
