“Letter by letter, they spelled out the words ‘Billie Holiday’ until they didn’t register anymore, the sort of sing-songy chant you might hear on a playground. The letters, glazed in reverb and sung in unison, slurred into one another over the slack strum of guitar. Out of nowhere, the song suddenly cribbed lyrics from a girl-group anthem from the 1960s, Mary Wells’s ‘My Guy': ‘Nothing you can say/ Can tear me away/ From my guy/ Nothing you can do/ ‘Cause I’m stuck like glue/ To my guy.’

The song in question was called ‘Billie Holiday,’ and it encapsulated the hypnotic powers of the band singing it at the Paradise on Tuesday night. Warpaint is essentially a modern girl group, but one that lingers in a haze of ’60s psychedelia and ’80s shoegaze. The Shangri-Las on Quaaludes, if you will.”-[BostonGlobe]

That review is from Warpaint‘s date with The Paradise in Boston on 3/29, the day before they would hit Brooklyn Bowl with tourmates PVT & The Family Band and one of two NYC dates in total (they also played Bowery Ballroom the next night). Pictures from Brooklyn Bowl adorn this post. More of them, with dates too, below…
