based on the amount of search traffic coming to brutalhipster.com for the new mixtape only because i posted about the first “house of balloons” mixtape, i thought it would be a good idea to drink some buffalo trace and blog about the latest mixtape.
“thursday” follows up the homemade r&b vibes but expands on the “house of balloons” blueprint incorporating subtle rasta vibes, improved garage band plugins/fx, more indie rock samples that i cannot identify, but lacking in beach house samples (which is the only reason i listened to the first mixtape anyway).
so it feels like things are starting to come together for the weeknd and more people are googling for them. i miss the beach house samples but “thursday” is still pretty hip and legit.
rumor has it, a third mixtape is forthcoming.
