Weekend is a band native to Brooklyn via San Francisco who seamlessly combine a ferocious post-punk zeal with a pure pop elegance. It's a rare and intuitive sound, which has only gained strength and precision in recent years.
Previously, they released the widely acclaimed LP Sports back in 2010, followed soon after by the excellent EP Red in 2011, both on the flawless Berkeley California label Slumberland Records. Their highly anticipated second LP Jinx also on Slumberland hits stores on July 23.
In this recent Newtown Session, Weekend showcases two mind-melting new singles, "Mirror" and "Oubliette" fresh off their new album, Jinx.
