Holy Hype!

by Beautiful Weekend

supported by
Mike Gintz
Mike Gintz thumbnail
Mike Gintz Super minimal yet harmonically-complex solo guitar with dual vocals. At first I had a hard time tracking the melodies within, but repeated listening reveals that it's all, despite its dense, modern-composery structure, somehow pretty catchy.

RIYL: Schoenberg Favorite track: Dynamite.

From out of nothing a world you found / From within a dream you found / You draw on your skin the eternal line / You draw within the eternal line / One cannot look without offering a silent prayer / Throwing caution to the wind is not the same as taking risks
Filter sound and make a lion's song / Fortune likes favorites / sent to us again again / Words travel lightly / faster than lighting / It all comes down to you / Sensational point of view / As you look back upon the fractures / Scattered bodies all in bloom / reflected through crystal rooms / I'm overcome / Almost too late for some
Forest fires painted green/ Measured in times unseen / I'll be out there somehow somewhere / You ask how one could have known / I've traveled centuries / Acres of nothing / All is beautiful until further inspection
It's the possibility of living a million lives in one life / Consider the places you've lived and the people who've affected you / Direct Distinctions between the faces you recognize and the moments you remember
Morning 02:46
Morning surrenders you to the day / Let it grow and unfold / Do is the sound of our learning / Breathing in time without question / We'll think up some autumn games to play / This night suggests how far we are / Doesn't it ring a bell / this name we know so well
Trace the burnt brick with my finger tips / Each time listening a little more deeply / My shoulder has turned in on itself again / If life were as simple and as pretty as it can be sometimes I'd give in and I'd let everything take under / House of dreams painted blue / Sliding glass door is closed / Marksman graves / Flashlight games / Sprinklers mist / Fountains rain
Stretch the timepiece over the frame / Call to mind separate lives / Amplify silence which mimics the dawn / No more no less / Taking the time to make sense / All that's left is memory's face
I Lie 01:37
I lie in a strange girls room / All the sounds she makes are far away / It is dark / People are staring out their windows / Their eyes are filled with the sounds
Dynamite 02:25
This is not what I meant when I asked for your time / Won't put much significance / This mighty autumn afternoon / There are reports / The winds are insane / Building up building down / Flooding over ears / Riding our bikes until dawn through Brooklyn / How much can come / How much can go
Time to Rise 03:05
This place isn't quite familiar / One day slides into another / Coined phrases turn different shades / Mind weighs heavy on their gaze / Time to Rise / Those pretty things turn tragic / Riding trusting our fellow riders


Beautiful Weekend's debut full-length, Holy Hype!, ranges widely across the experimental landscape while still maintaining a uniquely identifiable sound. Taking cues from early music, the contemporary independent scene, and modern classical composition, the songs wind sinewy melodic material around non-traditional harmonic anchors. The album was recorded by the band over the course of 2011, giving it a close and honest sound indicative of the long-time friendship of its members, Joel Roston (voice, guitar) and Noell Dorsey (voice, percussion).


released April 17, 2012

Recorded by Beautiful Weekend, Mixed and Mastered by Scott Craggs at Old Colony.

Coming out on Peacock Recordings.

Beautiful Weekend Boston, Massachusetts

A one-off collaboration between Joel Roston (Big Bear/Polaris Mine) and Noell Dorsey (Guillermo Sexo) in 2005 created a compositional frenzy that became Beautiful Weekend. Together, they combine excellent technical abilities from varied backgrounds to craft quiet, somber compositions resting somewhere on a spectrum between haunting and loving. ... more
