It’s worth repeating: L.A.’s Warpaint is an all-female lineup that shows the boys how it’s done. Produced by two blokes named Flood and Nigel Godrich, Warpaint’s latest is a spacey mix of art-pop and rock, with Jenny Lee Lindberg and drummer Stella Mozgawa laying down grooves that kill. Taking her full-toned Ricky 4001 into syncopated jaunts (especially on the trippy, hard-driving “Keep It Healthy”) is Lindberg’s forte, and she flaunts it like Simenon, Greenwood, Clayton—take your pick.

CD Review: Death "N.E.W."

Another early-’70s adopter of the Rickenbacker 4001, Death’s frontman and bassist Bobby Hackney soaked up the sound of rock’s heavyweights (Entwistle and Glover especially) and channeled it into his band’s signature Detroit punkpsych onslaught.
