Who are Warpaint?

November 8th, 2010

Warpaint are composed of four ladies based in LA, and have just released their debut album The Fool
.


Harmonized female vocals, sometimes three at a time, high pitched, almost ethereal.

Melodic and  melancholic, with simple guitar melodies, a drum kit and keyboards.

Although there are moments of dissonance, and heavy reverb rock guitar playing, they know when to stop, when to let the song breathe with space and silence. And I can hear the different elements of song clearly (something I find distinctly lacking in many contemporary indie rock albums).

There is nothing extraordinary or super original about Warpaint, they are just good. Their songs get under my skin with their melancholy and beauty. Especially the layered voices, and how they change throughout the song.

I don’t know much about them, but as I listen I keep getting drawn back to certain songs. From The Fool, the songs I like the best so far are (in no particular order): Undertow, Shadows, Composure, Baby and Lissie’s Heart Murmur.

You can listen and buy from itunes UK here.

You can also check them out here on our museradio.fm Amazon store, where we post our favorite albums in mp3 and CD format.

Warpaint also released an EP, previous to The Fool, called Exquisite Corpse.

The future of museradio.fm

June 23rd, 2010

It has been almost a year since we launched museradio.fm and  we’re constantly racking our brains and trying to figure out if we can turn this labour of love into a business.

So after many discussions, much debate and advice from people who know more than us (there are not many around but we did find some ;-) ), we have decided to take the bold step and go for a subscription model. The ‘everything-free-all-the-time’ model that has seen the internet grow at a phenomenal rate is clearly unsustainable and people are beginning to understand that for quality, you have to pay.

Before you start typing your exclamatory comments, let me just mention that there will still be free content on the site and that the monthly subscription, which will give you access to all the past playlists and some exclusive content, will be ridiculously cheap! Less than a pint at the pub in fact. Plus we will be bringing you a brand new site with vastly improved features as well as great podcasts spotlighting some of our favourite artists.

OK, now you can type your comments! We would love your feedback on this, so please drop us a note below or send us an email at olivia (at) museradio (dot) fm or lilly (at) museradio (dot) fm.
