Weekend - Sports (2010)

"This Weekend does it better without the vampires. The trio's post-punk cherry picking makes me feel like an easy mark. Their "All-American/"Youth Haunts" single is one of the bright spots of a very bright San Francisco scene, drawing heavily from the swoon school, but with the storming force of a punk mantra. The A-side is smoking, like Sonic Youth's "Schizophrenia" filtered through the early Slumberland bands and with a kiss of Cure - listen to it as many times as I did this past and you'll be wondering when these dudes blow up too." - San Francisco Bay Guardian
 
"...what happens if No Age traded in good vibes and instead got real angry from the depths of a muffled cavern. It's about four minutes of build up, windy moans and plodding drums giving way to a balls to the wall freakout as the whole song collapses on itself." - Fader
 
"Easily one of our favorite bands to emerge in the past year, the trio's infectious sound pays a certain homage to Psychocandy era Jesus Mary & Chain, with a similar pop sensibility and love for tinnitus-inducing feedback as the shoegaze pioneers. Despite having only a handful of released tracks and live appearances under their belt, the group has managed to make quite a name for themselves over the past year, landing opening spots for uber-hyped acts Japandroids and Little Girls, releasing a limited run 10" on the in-demand label Mexican Summer and most recently playing tastemaker Gorilla Vs Bear's insanely stacked SXSW showcase -- all signs point to 2010 being the breakout year for the band." - SFist
 
"...West coast Jesus & Mary Chain mutations have followed the secret treasure map to our heart with tracks that are as charmingly slack, dead eyed and authentically unhinged as these yet still so visceral, positively scorched out and hand-washed with distortion." - Transparent Blog
