The Weeknd: House of Balloons

We admittedly know very little about Toronto's one man operation The Weeknd other than the fact that he's making some stellar new tunes that don't play on the tired music memes of 2010. These are noticeably fresh compositions and mixes that channel elements of R&B and dubstep (two genres we admittedly aren't massive fans of) and have a solid understanding of song structure and melody. Also, he samples Beach House and has a boob on the cover, so, that's cool too. No news (yet) on more tunes or an LP. Download the excellent mixtape above. Thx GVB!
