The Weird Weeds are a trio from Austin, TX that draws upon wildly divergent musical backgrounds to create pop music that is experimental yet surprisingly palatable and well-conceived. Since 2003 they have released two full-length albums and one EP, and have extensively toured the U.S. and Canada. Their members have collaborated with a huge array of musicians including Jandek, Tom Carter, Arnold Dreyblatt, The Cherry Blossoms, Xiu Xiu, and many more. For their third album (and first for Austin’s Autobus Records) "I Miss This", the band spent seven months recording at home and in the studio, a far more labor-intensive process than any previous record they’ve made. The album further develops their already well-defined sound, expanding their dynamic range and musical scope beyond 2005’s acclaimed "Weird Feelings". The songs go from the most raucous distorted guitar romps to the most delicate acoustic ballads, still continually indulging their penchant for complex harmonies, unconventional song structures, and strange noises. "I Miss This" is another meticulously crafted and beautifully executed album from a unique and talented band. “Beautifully unnerving” – Austin Chronicle “Light years ahead of most bands” – Dusted Magazine “Surprising and swiftly captivating” – All Music Guide “Evocative and engaging…as understated and tonal as a Rothko canvas” – Pitchfork Media
