Introducing - Warpaint

Hailing from sunny LA this all girl quartet have been attracting a serious amount of interest in recent months and it's easy to see why. Possessing a soulful combination of haunting vocals, shimmering hooks and a melodious unpredictability which ranges from tranquil to psychedelic, Warpaint are the real deal.

Have a listen to the instantly loveable lead single 'Undertow' and decide for yourself. If you're as taken with them as myself then the bad news is that you've just missed the ladies, after they played Crawdaddy last night. There's no other Irish dates confirmed but with don't be surprised if you see a lot of Warpaint in the near future.

Debut LP 'The Fool' is out this Monday and it's currently streaming in it's entirety via The Hype Machine.

New Release: British Sea Power to release new EP

Those wonderful purveyors of artful indie rock, British Sea Power, are back with a new EP - Zeus! Their first release since last year's niche-soundtrack 'Man of Aran', it's good to see BSP back to basics and doing what they do best with the title track arriving as a sweeping, epic anthem.

Billed by the band as a 'wild and wunderbar-wonky precursor' to the band’s fourth studio album' which is set for release in 2011, it's good to see that BSP have enough material under their belt to allow for such a release and if they can go some way to matching 2008's 'Do You Like Rock Music?', then we're in for a treat.

Zeus is out from Monday and you can listen to the title track from HERE now.

Video: The Flaws - 'Part of You'

I've always had  a soft spot for The Flaws and I'm glad to see them back with a new album entitled Constant Adventure. The video for latest single 'Part of you' raises the poignant issue of what the world would be like if those cool kids who decide to be zany and dress in Morphsuits for festivals were forever trapped in them...more information on a helpline to follow soon.

Musically it doesn't stray too far from their original concept of a catchy verse, nice riff and a sing-along chrous but this is standard 'meat and two veg' indie done extremely well and you can expect a decent bit of airplay from daytime radio I'm sure.
