Soulive’s Alan Evans and Kris Yunker, who plays with Evans in his Alan Evans Trio, have formed a new project together, dubbed The 7 Day Weekend. The duo have released the new project’s self-titled debut record.
According to a press release, “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,” the press release continued.
