Warpaint

Moody Los Angeles post-punkers Warpaint entranced heartsick indie fans with their 2010 full-length debut, The Fool. On their self-titled follow-up, the all-female quartet's gift for ringing, skeletal guitar lines, slyly defiant lyrics and keening melodies remains intact. This time out – aided by frequent U2 collaborator Flood's spacious production, with mixing help from Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich – the band proves it can work bodies as well as massage spirits. The silvery "Hi" and the femme-fatale warning of "Disco//very" show off a newfound rhythmic shiver to mesmerizing effect. It makes this enveloping album the perfect backdrop for your next midnight séance or moonlit dance party.
