Philly’s Weekender are a band definitely making some great moves, in large part to the recent release of an excellent 5 song EP, Spanish Peaks. Weekender are Derek and Nic Sheehan, Tom Anthony and Emily Cahill, and their musical style falls squarely into the world of psychedelic dreampop and shoegaze music with shimmery, reverbed, fuzzy guitars and dancey beats. Musically they bring to mind a little Primal Scream, a little Stone Roses and a little Happy Mondays. Produced by Kyle “Slick” Johnson at Fancy Time Studios, Spanish Peaks is a very accomplished collection of songs that you can download below for a “name your own price.” Weekender play tonight at Johnny Brenda’s opening for Peace and Team Spirit.
