After unleashing a mysterious demo track “Sirens” last fall, today San Francisco-bred and Brooklyn-buttered band Weekend offers up the first official taste of their forthcoming second LP, Jinx. Crafted alongside Monte Vallier (The Soft Moon, Young Prisms), who produced the band’s 2010 debut Sports and 2011’s Red EP, the new album reveals a wonderfully singular work with an expanded spectrum of sound. Jinx emerges as Weekend’s most confident, emotionally unfiltered release to date, and the effect is roaring and disorienting all at once.
As lead singer/bassist Shaun Durkan once said, “If you think we were loud and obnoxious before, you’re gonna hate this” (Sentimentalist Magazine). Premiering today on Pitchfork, Weekend’s lead track “Mirror” sets the stage – and you can expect a gloriously noisy return.
Weekend will be playing live on May 16th with No Joy at Glasslands (Brooklyn, NY).
Tickets are available here.
