This album has been on repeat on my iPod for the last couple of weeks. A perfect soundtrack for your way home at night or an all-nighter at the office. Finally a new perspective on R’n’B by the new electro/downtempo/hipster collaboration “The Weeknd” from Toronto. Fits perfectly into a Glitchmob-James-Blake-Theophilus-London-mix. I can’t imagine something deeper at the moment – an overall amazing debut album. Here are two Youtube clips: “High For This” and “Glass Table”. The entire album is free for download on their website: the-weeknd.com. More info on Wikipedia.
