So Good

I watched the Warpaint gig from 6 Music's Glasgow festival on the iPlayer last week and then went back to last year's Heads Up album which underwhelmed me at the time. I'm a big fan of the group, the dance-rock grooves, the post-punk bass, Californian harmonies and fluid guitars, but Heads Up just seemed to wash over me without making much of an impact. I've got a bit more out of it now. This song, So Good, has a funky disco drumbeat, locked in bass from Jenny Lee and the vaguest of choruses. The instrumental part towards the end where the keys play off against the rest is a joy.

So Good

I've been on the fence about the band until recently, but heard the 6Music Festival gig and enjoyed it a great deal.

I keep meaning to see them whenever they play here but always miss out.

Saw them live when they toured the debut LP. Didn't really do it for me, but Comrade Colin (who you'll meet in Glasgow) is a bit of a devotee.
