(Insert your own joke about bands named Weekend here) I will let every other single other music publication make reference to the popular artists sharing similar band names to the Slumberland Records group Weekend, but I not clever enough to come up with a sufficient pun to top all of the unemployed English majors out there, so I will simply proceed to talking about the band. Weekend made a dent last year when they released their spirited LP Sports and are already back with an EP of new material. Below you can hear the early 90’s referencing “Hazel,” which will be part of their forthcoming EP Red, which will also be put out on Slumberland. The track is driven by a charging bassline, with some shoegaze-lite guitars and a melody that is ripped from one of your favorite bands from 1993. All things considered, it is a pretty fun track from a band that wears their influences on their sleeve, but wear them well.
