Weekend

While a whole lot of Bay Area bands have a tendency to accept the sunny, psychedelic side of their city’s audio, San Francisco’s Weekend have seemingly chosen to accept their hometown’s foggier side. Produced in ’09 2009 by Shaun Durkan (bass/vocals), Kevin Johnson (electric guitar), and Abe Pedroza (drums), Weekend quickly produced a name for themselves using their post-punk-shoved-through-a-shoegaze-filter audio. The trio’s pounding bass’n’drum rhythms place the groundwork for Johnson’s wall structure of reverb-drenched electric guitar noise, offering the music a dark, subterranean sense. The whole deal is tied jointly by Durkan’s murky vocals, which experience both faraway and warm, like hearing a My Bloody Valentine tune on the fading radio place. After several limited vinyl fabric singles, the music group agreed upon on with Slumberland Information and released its full-length debut, Sports activities, this year 2010. After a season that noticed them touring and obtaining lots of great press, they came back in Sept of 2011 using the much less noisy but nonetheless intensely poppy Crimson EP. The band’s following album was made by Monte Vallier and highlighted a audio that divide the difference between your noise from the initial album as well as the pop of Crimson, while adding some gloomy post-punk towards the combine. Jinx premiered by Slumberland in the summertime of 2013.
