Last month the Couch-light was shined on a mysterious / up-and-coming outfit from Toronto going by the name The Weeknd (no e). Their unique style of lo-fi R&B is hella fresh and has been buzzing like crazy over the past few months, giving the receding genre a much needed underground boost.
A new track has recently surfaced called “Wicked Games” and just like its predecessors the song comes off provocatively uncoerced in lyrical content and extremely intoxicating in melody. I may officially be hooked on The Weeknd. Check it out.[audio:http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/The-Weeknd-Wicked-Game.mp3|titles=The Weeknd – Wicked Game]
