The Weeknd – “Rolling Stone”

The Weeknd
Fall is always a great time to be a music fan, and I’ve been to a ton of great shows lately.

One of the highlights was reviewing the Weeknd‘s excellent show last weekend for the Georgia Straight. His new video for “Rolling Stone” is below. I’m used to Abel Tesfaye keeping himself a little more hidden than he does in this clip.

The Weeknd – “Montreal”

The Weeknd
For the current issue of the Georgia Straight (up until tomorrow, that is), I wrote an article about the Weeknd, who is undoubtedly one of the most intriguing newcomers to arrive on the pop landscape in some time.

Below is the steamy R&B noir number “Montreal,” which comes from his recent Echoes of Silence mixtape and is currently making my girlfriend do one of the funniest dances I’ve ever seen. It ends a bit abruptly since it’s meant to lead directly into the next track, “XO/The Host.”

The Weeknd – “The Morning”

The Weeknd
Fuck it. Fine. You win, Abel Tesfaye. After months of dismissing it, I’ve come around to the inevitable conclusion that the Weeknd is awesome and House of Balloons is a creepy, mind-bending masterpiece. It’s one of the most lyrically debauched albums I’ve ever heard, and this might be a turn-off were it not for the angelic soul crooning and chilling beats. Below is the standout “The Morning.”

The Weeknd’s been keeping me busy over at Exclaim! by releasing mitapes with no warning. Such is Abel’s way.
