Warpaint and "The Fool" Release

Warpaint, an "all-girl" post-punk outfit, came out with their full-length release The Fool (Rough Trade) towards the end of last year.

It's an electric outfit with lude-ey vocals working within the rock-song form. They come across as sincere and genuine. Instrumentally they are not displeasing.

What you think of them will have to do with your view of the post-punk scene. They are rough edged rather than polished. Vocals may waver from standard pitch references. These ladies are not so much head-bangers and thrashers as they are purveyors of songs on the dark side, delivered in a laid-back, unfiltered, off-kilter fashion.

I respect that.
