Pounding drums and basslines lay the groundwork for the reverb-soaked guitar licks and murky vocals that help set Weekend apart from their Bay Area indie cohorts. Coating their warm songs with dark and edgy feelings, the trio has released three albums cloaked in post-punk gloom since 2009. Their 2013 album Jinx finds the perfect split between their noisy, intense debut Sports and their more poppy Red EP. Weekend fill a void by offering a special, inviting soundtrack to an otherwise dark and lonesome genre of music — proving that weekends aren’t just for partying.
