Weekend

At least five bands have used this name: 1. Weekend is a punk/shoegaze/psychedelic band from San Francisco, CA. Their debut 10" was released on Mexican Summer records in December 2009 to favorable reviews. No Pain in Pop – “Stunning, doomed, darkness…” Fader Magazine – “…what happens if No Age traded in good vibes and instead got real angry from the depths of a muffled cavern. It’s about four minutes of build up, windy moans and plodding drums giving way to a balls to the wall freakout as the whole song collapses on itself.”

Scenic

Famed lithographer and record/cd artwork cover artist Bruce Licher's mellow psychedelic rock band Scenic is subtle but potent force from the Sonoran desert that inspired much of the music.
Gentle yet dangerous, Scenic create a vocals-free layered guitar soundscape that tantalizes without ever fully satisfying, thereby creating an unfinished story in the mind of the listener.

Young Prisms

They recorded their self-titled EP in the living room of their apartment in the first half of 2009. On this first spaced-out EP, the band strands its listeners in the solitude of a beach fireworks display with nothing but lights for the tongue and acid for the ears--arresting, colors everywhere.
