New Music: Weekend- Mirror
The Bay Area of California seems to have spawned a lot of dark post punk music in recent years, almost making us forget that San Francisco was once a hippie town. The San Francisco/Oakland scene boasts the likes of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Film School, Tamaryn, Soft Moon, The Bilinda Butchers, Young Prisms, Permanent Collection, Whirr and of course Weekend.
Weekend released one of my favourite albums in 2010, Sports, and are now set to release their sophomore LP which is titled Jinx. "Mirror" is the first track to be previewed from the new record and it seems to indicate that the band may going in a darker direction. Listen below:
Jinx will be released July 23rd via Slumberland.
For fans of Tamaryn, Interpol.
