Weekend :: "Coma Summer"

Sometimes things are exactly what they say they are. Rippling tams announce the arrival of Weekend, a group of post-punk friends from the West Coast who play songs like The Jesus and Mary Chain sunk to the bottom of a swimming pool. "Coma Summer," the first track of their forthcoming Slumberland release, clocks in at over six-minutes of feedback and building weight. The density would be suffocating if the chord progression were any less sunny and the sunshine would be brighter if, by their own admission, it wasn't so damn unconscious. The bass line is from the Cure, the guitars from a demo of Daydream Nation. The air gets cooler and we awake again to discover the season we missed, the time we slept through.
