CHECK OUT THIS BAND | WARPAINT
photo manipulation by nacrowe
i learned of LOS ANGELES-based INDIE band WARPAINT in the late 2000s from an interview with JOHN FRUSCIANTE who appreciated their rhythmically complex yet impressionistic feedback-swelled sonic textures.
i mention such since this band is firmly in the camp of INDIE bands that experiment with the form (implementing AFRICAN rhythms with looping feedback and echoed vocals) yet retain catchy hooks in the best tradition of THE TALKING HEADS, THE VELEVT UNDERGROUND, XTC, TELEVISION, FELA KUTI and yes, even JOHN FRUSCIANTE's idiosyncratic work in the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS.
they are definitely worth checking out.
