4. Heads Up (2016)

Heads Up - Album by Warpaint | Spotify

“I guess I’ll never be able to understand how and why people end up uprating and downrating albums anymore, because I absolutely feel this music. I have to admit that I had my doubts first and was kind of afraid that Warpaint eventually would end up being a jam band with pretty vocals, but I just feel that this is another step forward, into a more upbeat, more eclectic direction. The rhythm section is cooler and tighter than ever, there are some synths, some psychedelia, some jamming, r&b, trip-hop and the songs themselves also feel more polished and ambitious. While going into new directions, they girls still could keep the essence of their music. It’s dreamy, beautiful, groovy, sexy and sassy, it basically makes me want to stay up all night at home and dance.”

3. Exquisite Corpse (2009)

“So after hearing their amazing debut album, The Fool, Warpaint became a new favorite I wanted to hear more from. This EP is far not as brilliant but very promising. The top track Elephants actually shows how great this band will be later. Stars and Billie Holiday are pretty as well. However, the bass lines are usually so plain that no matter how eclectic the songs are, they become quite repetitive after a few minutes.
Anyway, Exquisite Corpse is a good start and I’m just so happy a band like this exists.”

2. The Fool (2010)

Warpaint: The Fool Album Review | Pitchfork

“Ah Warpaint, so glad I got to know you. Trancey stuff here on this debut album: lolling, hazy, soaring, melting, swaying. The musical journey of The Fool seems to be all about ambient hypnosis. Not exactly ‘easy going’ listening though, embedded therein is an unsettling undercurrent, a prickly extra element that may not make for an endearing ride for less acquainted listeners.”

1. Warpaint (2014)

Warpaint: Warpaint Album Review | Pitchfork

“Got a bad feeling this will not given chance to reveal itself by so many in this day and age. It’s easy to move onto something else when an album doesn’t initially grab you and ‘Warpaint’ doesn’t have many characteristics that suggest it will immediately grab people. Stick with it though and you’ll be rewarded. An album that has got better with every listen to these ears and one that seems to be cementing itself as one i’ll be coming back to for years to come”
