That Weekends' new album New Humans has a song called “Basement Fuzz” should tell you everything you need to know, but the Baltimore duo are interested in more than just aimless banging through the sounds of yesterdecade. Like taking their guitar to arena rock heights thanks to an acute awareness of both the anthemic and the alternative that makes rock n' roll endure. The real star is the guitar and the many forms the band gives them: glossy aquamarine swirls, crunchy power chords apt to rattle your garage door, and grinding organ-y dirges all contribute to make an album that's gunning to be the soundtrack to your next roadtrip.
