Important Records to release new Weeed LP, issues mandatory Grammarly accounts for all their recording artists

Listen up, Krautrockers: a kickass new stoner band has emerged out of the weird, funky haze that is Washington state, and they’re on a rebellious war path to take over American music as we know it.

“What’s so rebellious about them,” you might ask? Well for one thing, they gave a big old “fuck you” to spell check and decided to name their band Weeed, adding in that extra “e” in a ceremonious display of “cool guy” insouciance. And for another, far more radical thing, their latest LP — entitled This and due June 1 on Important Records, consists solely of four “hypnotically riffing” tracks that have an average length of over 10 minutes; even for hair-farming, Pacific Northwest shoegazers, that’s a pretty brave subjection to the oft-discretionary flannel-clad masses. I mean, you’ve gotta give exactly zero fucks to pull that one off.

The album is a self-described “outgrowth” from their previous release (which was last year’s fuzz-binge-ing META, btw), and Improc have described it as containing “an expansive musical vision and an astonishingly mature sound…[full of] tight syncopations and pulsing polyrhythms.” (I have to say, I LOL’ed just a little bit at the thought of “astonishingly mature” being used to identify a band that uses three e’s to spell the word “weed”).

To get you pumped up for the forthcoming LP, which should be available for vinyl and cassette pre-order over at Improc any day now, have yourself a listen to last year’s META down below. Zero fucks, indeeeed.
