Better late than never, here is Valerie's photo set from last Tuesday night's Ottobar show. Warpaint, Lands and Peoples, and Secret Mountains all provided lush soundscapes for those who attended.
Warpaint were an extremely talented closer, a female foursome hailing from Los Angeles. These ladies have heralded a ton of praise as of late, and last week they showed Baltimore why. Their stage presence was endearing, and their pop touched with psych was hazily beautiful. I highly reccomend their debut EP, Exquisite Corpse.
Lands and Peoples were a band to keep an eye on last year, and have sure enough began to come into their own in 2010. Their sound has expanded, along with their lineup as they've added a bassist. Last Tuesday offered a taste of some of the new things they've been working on, as they recently spent a week in Chris Freeland's studio recording a new album. However, the highlight of the set had to be their closing cover of Zomes' "Sentient Beings", of which the original is streaming below.
Get the rest of last Tuesday's photo set after the click.
