The Fool - Rough Trade
FILTER Grade: 86%

With a hypnotic sound, magical mood and some Cat Power-inspired fairy-like vocals, L.A. based Warpaint has created a debut album to fall in love with—and to. It’s uncomplicated, psychedelic indie-girl rock with plenty of hazy guitar and a swooning, restrained sadness. Compared to Exquisite Corpse, the band’s first EP, The Fool has a somewhat lamentable polished and predictable quality to it; but let’s face it, that’s exactly why it’s bound to be played in every hip boutique in the world.
