Music Monday - The Weeknd / House of Balloons

(click to download)

The closest appoximation I can think of for what to expect when hearing this: imagine Usher singing for Portishead.
I heard their song “The Morning” at the end of a recent episode of Uhh Yeah Dude. I looked it up online and saw that the whole album is up for free download. I’ve spent the last week listening to this pretty heavily. Sure, they lyrics are a little ridiculous (and dang, homeboy likes to drop f-bombs), but overall it's a really fresh take on R&B.

  1. This is surprisingly addictive. Not at all what I was expecting from your Music Mondays. And I didn't notice until today, but this was posted on my birthday.
