Weekend forgo the shoegaze fuzz of their 2010 debut album, Sports, for taut post-punk on “Mirror,” the lead single off the trio’s upcoming sophomore LP, Jinx. The Brooklyn-by-way-of-San Francisco three-piece lock into a bleak marathon of a rhythm — all panicky drums and stalking bass line — while frontman Shaun Durkan sings in monotone, “I feel sick, sick, sick in my heart.”

Jinx drops July 23 on Slumberland Records.

1. “Mirror”
2. “July”
3. “Oubliette”
4. “Celebration, FL”
5. “Sirens”
6. “Adelaide”
7. “It’s Alright”
