To say that San Francisco’s Weekend‘s debut album ‘Sports’ is an intriguing listen would be the understatement of the year. This is an album full of oddity. The band are quick to utilise such basement recording techniques such as reverb, low-fi and echoing, which all in all give this album a rather old fashioned yet somehow modern indie rock feel to it. However, incorporating all of these elements is often the band’s downfall as any melody is lost under a sea of sonic noise, with all the vocals being echoed anyway.
