The Weeknd

My deep-rooted, nostalgic love for early-90's R&B is springing some new green. The genre's dark cascade towards growling sex cynicism and clenched maxillary muscles is just what I plan to keep ducking into.

The Weeknd, known up until now for those who can find them {him?} as XO, is 20 year-old Torontonian Abel Tesfaye. Doesn't take long to figure out the kind of night you're gonna have after listening to his sensuously violent, don't-let-mom-hear-this-on-your-mixtape lyrics. Sink your teeth into the shoulder of TW's House of Balloons download here. Don't miss Beach House samplings with How To Dress Well leanings, and previous release "What You Need."
