The 7 Day Weekend - Debut Album
From the USA comes the self-titled debut album from a band with an incredible pedigree: The 7 Day Weekend are acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and producer Alan Evans (co-founder and drummer of soul-funk legends Soulive), and in-demand keyboard player Kris Yunker (Alan Evans Trio/ Jen Dunkin & The Business).
The 7 Day Weekend is born from and influenced by the sounds and compositions of 60s and 70s film scores. Evans & Yunker combine their songwriting and production aesthetic to create what they describe as “electrorganic music”. Blending evocative ambient soundscapes with impeccable funk & hip hop-influenced grooves, the duo have put together a luscious collection of instrumentals for their self-titled debut.
From boogie, to jazz-funk, to sultry cinematic sounds, "The 7 Day Weekend" is an album that draws equally from the sonic landscapes of Galt McDermot as it does from those of J-Dilla, conjuring laid back summer grooves and transporting the listener to the weekend no matter what day of the week it is.
