Embed and breakfast man: Warpaint

What a strange NME it is this week. It's got Warpaint on the cover, which is right and feels like the direction that KM had originally been taking the magazine in. But it's got posters of Oasis, White Stripes, Libertines and... you know. It's almost as if there's a fear that putting an act still in a getting-to-know-you stage of their career on the cover is going to be so alienating to the NME readership, they've had to balance it with the cover promises of big glossy pictures of Liam and Jack and Pete. "Don't worry, readers, we're not really moving on. Stare at Noel's eyebrows. We're not going to kill your heroes, no matter how rubbish they've become."

On the plus side, though, it is a big splash for Warpaint. Let's celebrate with a quick smattering of Warpaint through the day.

First, and perhaps most obviously, here's the video for Undertow:
