Long Weekends 

Don’t Reach Out 7” (Noyes)

long_wknds_review.jpg

Coming across like a fuzzier, steadier rolling blend of Sleater-Kinney and Buddy Holly, Long Weekends’ dreamy twist contest soundtrack defies you to stay still. The peppy, lo-fi garage songs have an undertone of spookiness, courtesy of post-punk chord progressions and singer-guitarist Noel Macdonald’s unusual---and supremely satisfying---vocalizations. The trio is a rare find, its intense delivery of mellow surfy riffs scratch a weird itch that has been bugging Halifax for a long time. A dichotic mix of fresh and familiar, Long Weekends turn out a sparkling addition to the Noyes Records Singles Series that challenges you not to play it into oblivion.
