***“After their debut album and two EPs, which they recorded and mixed with their friends, WEEKENDS now present us with Strange Cultures. This full length record is the product of the guitar/drum duo‘s rapid growth, while getting some new hands to help out on the production front. Strange Cultures was mixed and mastered by ROB GIRARDI (Beach House, Double Dagger, Celebration). Rob’s made a habit out of making unconventional sounds—and in this case, organized chaos—stand out in their own raw beauty. His vision of this album helped clean things up, while retaining the proper amount of scuzz, dirt, and drowning sonics that make up the LP. After what Rob did with Double Dagger’s More, there could not have been better hands on the mixing boards. There are anthems, there are sing-alongs, there are scorchers, and there is even a ballad. Side A is closed out by a seven minute (vinyl-only) version of ‘Raingirls,’ a live show standard that ADAM and BRENDAN just kept going with during one session. Strange Cultures has been defined by a growing list of adjectives, genres, and comparisons—yet we’re not sure if anyone will ever quite pinpoint the aural elation felt while spinning this on your turntable.” Edition of 500 copies.
