It's not what you think of when you hear the words "Weekend music" -- but that doesn't stop it from being rad. A San Fran trio dedicated to dark, thundering punk, walls of feedback, and somber, hazy confessions -- Weekend do everything on a grand, emotional scale.
That includes making records. Their debut LP, Sports (for indie darlings Slumberland Records) is a brooding, visceral assault of fuzzy guitars and dark, gloomy lyrics perfect for getting lost in, or -- for those of us with existential angst -- reveling in gloriously.
