Warpaint - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

We have been caught in "The Undertow" of this L.A.-based band since 2010, when they released their excellent debut, The Fool. Warpaint's atmospheric sound captivated us and had us waiting with bated breath for the release of their follow up. Well, the wait is over and we now have a new self-titled release from the band. Warpaint still maintains that same spooky vibe that we expect from the band, but they've also incorporated some new sounds and a more meticulous approach to arrangement. Warpaint recently stopped by Studio A to play us some of their new songs and to talk about their new album.

by Alisa Ali

Matthew Hemerlein is the man behind the moniker Lo-Fang. He is a classically-trained musician who likes to experiment with as many different sounds as he can. In fact, he played all of the instruments on his full-length debut, Blue Film. The album touches on a great variety of styles – from Pop to Krautrock. He recently stopped by WFUV to perform some of his songs and to talk about the new record.
