Press Release -

The follow up to Fist Fam’s lofi Al Lover produced LP Posted finds the southern boys turned San Francisco residents embracing the cleaner sound of their adopted city’s hiphop scene while delving deeper into their low brow late night dive bar lifestyle. Weekend Cult, a name birthed from the mushroom addled backwood bonfire gatherings the group of friends religiously throw to pay respects to the Pimp named Chad, represents the dichotomy of moonshine sipping country folks thriving in the busy city streets of the Bay Area and signals a new beginning for the group as they drop the Fist Fam name altogether. The group sticks to what they know best on this release, a lifestyle filled with mind altering substances, late nights, and women of questionable morals while never straying too far from their southern roots. The group’s sometimes devious humor is delivered in a deadpan tone throughout the album, most notably on tracks like Stripper Glitter & Cognac and Ratface reminding the listener that rap music is one of the only things the group actually does take seriously. San Francisco underground staples and fellow Gurp City associates Boac, Cutty Bang, and Optik provide the majority of the beats on this release creating a smooth foundation for the North Carolinians grimey style. A clear standout, Oil Lamp Hash produced by Asheville’s Swilliam is a love song to medical marijuana and will soon be accompanied by a video from the respected photographer Trevor Traynor for I Shoot People. While the sound of Weekend Cult may be cleaner than Posted, the group continues the tradition they began last year as purveyors of psychedelic country rap tunes, and lay a solid foundation for a year of releases which will culminate in their next Al Lover produced LP just in time for the coming Apocalypse of 2012.
