Call Of The Undertow

I end this quiet and frosty three-day weekend with the brooding, memorable 'Undertow' by LA-based experimental art-rock Warpaint.

This all-female group was formed on Valentine's Day 2004 by four childhood friends and took a few years to gain traction and record songs, finally breaking through late last year with 'The Fool,' their much-admired debut.

Piquant as an anchovy, but more downbeat and subtle, this group's music just creeps up on you...

Great, artsy clip for 'Undertow' using tweenage actors and band members...

For contrast, check out the band's upbeat but lo-fi 'Beetles' from early last year:

Here's an intimate clip for 'Elephant' the band recorded in 2009:
