High-energy, back-to-basics rock & roll. That’s the sound of Easy, The Week’s long-awaited followup to their breakthrough album, Dear Bo Jackson. Recorded at Ardent Studios in Memphis â€” a place filled with the ghosts (and gear) of the Replacements, ZZ Top, and Big Star, all of whom traveled to Ardent to create their own landmark albums Easy finds The Weeks doubling down on a mix of groove, grit, and guitars. It’s swaggering and sharply-focused, shining new light on a band of brothers who, although still in their mid-20s, have already logged a decade’s worth of sweaty gigs together. If Easy bears resemblance to the raw, rowdy attitude of the The Weeks’ live show, it’s because the album was written at the end of a busy, five-year period that found the group rarely leaving the road.
