After a heavy weekend (great nights both Friday and Saturday at Shelter!!) I was just checking out a few other blogs and headed over to the King Midas Sound site to see what was going on there. As well as the nice surprise of seeing the latest post, a few weeks back Hitomi posted a link up for a Canadian artist called The Weeknd. Some of you may already be on this (his latest mixtape was downloaded over 180,000 times on the first day) but its a new one to me. The Weeknd is Abel Tesfaye, an Ethiopian-Canadian R&B singer based in Toronto, and he makes some really nice dubbed out pop/r&b. His latest release, entitled ‘Thursday’ is out now for free download here. Get it downloaded, sit back with a moon cake and get it listened to!
