The Weeknd- House of Balloons

null While I wait for the next installment in this trilogy Thursday I figured why not put some more people on. A friend put me on a while ago and I’m hooked. If you haven’t heard of him you need to check The Weeknd’s debut mixtape out. Mysterious dude from Toronto who has been receiving critical acclaim as of late. Rolling Stone calls him a artist to watch. A Picthfork media review says “its very hard to stop listening to”, and the Washington Post enamored by the shrouded secrecy even briefly eludes to him being a pioneer of a new sub-genre. This on top of getting a co-sign from Drake and a nomination for the 2011 Polaris Music Award. All that being said House of Balloons was said to be the first of a three part drop. Thursday and Echos of Silence to follow have not been released yet. In the mean time check him out.
