San Francisco’s noise-pop trio Weekend is singer and bassist Shaun Durkan, guitarist Kevin Johnson and drummer Abe Pedroza.

The band’s debut album, Sports was released on 11/9/2010 on Slumberland Records who describe the album as “one of the most assured debuts in recent memory, full of rumbling rhythms, layers of LOUD guitars and most of all great songs that pay special attention to texture and atmosphere, and leaven even the most riotous moments with unexpected shards of melody.”

Song of the Day – Monday 11/29/2010 OMD November 29, 2010

Yawwwn…stretch.  What’s going on?!  Am I still in a turkey-coma or am I having my favorite John Hughes dream?   You know what dream I’m talking about: It’s 1986, and I’m driving around in my pink Karmann Ghia, hanging out with Duckie and listening to The Smiths, New Order, and OMD!  I love that dream.  

Wake up!  OMG, it’s 2010 and OMD has released a new record!!!

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark released their 11th studio album, History of Modern on 9/28/2010 which is their first album since 1996, and the first album featuring the classic 4-piece line-up since 1986’s The Pacific Age

So go on, download the new album, transfer it to cassette, and let’s drive on over to TRAX and kick Steff’s preppy little ass!

Song of the Day – Monday 11/22/10 Girl Talk November 22, 2010

Pittsburgh’s Gregg Gillis, aka Girl Talk, is a musician/DJ who left the world of biomedical engineering to become a full-time mashup artist.  Because Gillis does not get permission from the original artists to create his mashups, the New York Times calls Girl Talk’s music “a lawsuit waiting to happen.”

Girl Talk’s fifth album, All Day was released last week on Illegal Art.  You can choose to either download it as separate tracks or as one seamless file and listen to it as it was “intended to be listened to as a whole.”  You can download the entire album for FREE here!

On the track, “Jump on Stage” Girl Talk samples everyone from Portishead, 50 Cent, Talking Heads, Radiohead, Iggy Pop, to Lady Gaga plus several more…

On stage, Girl Talk has been known to strip down to his skivvies and put on a crazy-ass show!  You’ll get to see first hand, what all mixing and mashing looks like when Girl Talk performs at the Fox Theater in Oakland on 3/18/2011!
