Long Weekends 

Dream punks

Long Weekends began with a dorm. Noel Macdonald (A History Of, Tomcat Combat) was living in Montreal last summer taking a French language course. “I was definitely the oldest guy there and they stuck me in a dormitory, I just felt so old and lonely,” he says. He began writing songs and started jamming with Adam Hartling and Devin Peck upon return to Halifax. Macdonald says his songs were originally written to be played much faster. “We decided to slow them down and give them more of a dreamier feel, dream punk---I wanted them to sound like garage rock on Valium.” The band has recorded one demo, available online, with Mike Wright (Long Long Long) at Echo Chamber. “He’s just done so much with Long Long Long and Hot Money [Records],” Macdonald says. “He’s really good at getting the blown-out sound we wanted.” They’re at work on a seven-inch to be released this summer, with tentative plans for an August tour of eastern Canada.
