Weekend

Sports

Slumberland Records

Sports is the first explosive release from San Franciscan post-punk trio Weekend.  Even though they’ve just emerged on the radar, it’s only a question of time until Weekend blows up.  Sports has everything from that ear for pop sensibility I adore to the sounds of ‘90s shoe gazing and a just perfect amount of distortion.  Weekend is comprised by Shaun Durkan’s haunting vocals (and bass) backed by Kevin Johnson’s garage inspired guitar and Abe Pedroza’s zealous drumming.  Songs transition flawlessly, building up layers of reverb and distorted cherry picking into melodic otherworldly verse that seems to echo into itself forever, not unlike placing on mirror facing another.  And each song is radically different, employing similar tactics into wonderfully unique compositions.  Weekend will last.

 

Released:  11/9/2010
