Hear the Echoes Interview with Seven Saturdays in the Echoes Podcast
What do you do when you’ve been weened on Brian Eno, Zero 7 and Pink Floyd, but you’re only in your mid-30s? There’s a good chance you might make music like Seven Saturdays. That’s the recording project from Jonathan D. Haskell who began making music under that name a few years ago. On his latest album he moves from ambient instrumentals to dream pop. It’s called Seven Saturdays, not to be confused with their debut EP, Seven Saturdays.
On Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon, like every other kid we wore that out and I remember we used to go to the Griffith Park Observatory and they did a laser show in high school. And we’d go there and totally zone out to Dark Side.
On vocals: The minute I added a vocalist, any kind of a vocal, I felt a more human connection to each song. Just having that human voice in there, a girl singing oohs and ahhs or whatever, makes me feel more connected to it in a way.
On Electronic Music: It’s not electronic music….Pretty much everything is recorded with a microphone or a person playing it, you know. There’s just not a lot of electronics going on and it’s very analog in a way.
Here’s a video of one of the tunes:
