'Song of the Week": War Paint- "Elephants"

There's been some great fuzzed out lo-fi coming out of L.A, especially from the female bands (Eagle and Talon, Dum Dum Girls). Warpaint, tabbed by many as a band to watch for 2010 is another talented band you can add to the list, with their latest EP Exquisite Corpse, which has been growing and growing on me with each listen. The band have signed to Rough Trade records and they have been in the studio recording their first full length LP with producer Tom Biller (Beck, Karen O, Liars). Making some time in between recording, the band will be on tour coming up with Yeasayer and also with Akron/Family next month. Catch them while you can.
