    BEAUTIFUL WEEKEND are here to show us two things: 1) there’s more to Joel Roston than the complex combinations he put together as part of the late Boston hardcore outfit Big Bear, and 2) Noell Dorsey of Guillermo Sexo still has that hauntingly operatic voice even without the catchy shoegaze of that crew.
