Download: The Weeks -- "Buttons"
Download: The Weeks -- "Altar Girl"
The Weeks' debut album taps into Southern roots (and their parents' vinyl collection) for influences. Raised on a Deep Southern diet of the Marshall Tucker Band and the Allman Brothers, the Weeks proudly hail from the rich musical heritage of their home state, a pride that burns proudly through the taut rhythm section and soaring leads of "Mississippi Rain". Sonically akin to Southern neighbors the Kings of Leon and friends Colour Revolt, the Weeks are roaring out of the garage, and are ready to take the stage as a Southern juggernaut to be reckoned with.
