Pick of the Day – November 15th: Weekend – Sports

Weekend – Sports

This album literally kicks ass from the start – from the first track.  It’s a very No Age, Joy Division-ish record as a whole, but they maintain some freshness, that allows it to be replayable.  They are out of San Francisco, a city that’s putting out some nice stuff right about now (see Girls).  It’s can be drone rock, woozy, and generally noisy and spaced, but it’s well paced, and the songwriting still comes through the gaze.  It’s just…a fucking awesome, well executed record.  Highly recommended – this will show up on lists I give for my favs of 2010.
