NIGHT DRIVING leads to inspiration

The subtle melodic nuances of Jonathan D. Haskell draw musical inspiration from late night drives lost in the Mulholland hills of after hours Los Angeles. In these quiet moments symphonic landscapes emerge to form the headphone-centric Seven Saturdays.

Seven Saturdays makes you feel as if you're on those late night drives, creating music with delicate keyboards and distant vocals that tug at your heart strings. While recorded in Los Angeles, Seven Saturdays strays from your typical indie rock band. The recordings of Seven Saturdays comprise an impressive list of talented musicians including: Morgan Kibby (M83), Mike Garson (David Bowie, Smashing Pumpkins), Wesley Precourt (Dave Stewart, Jenny Lewis), and Eric Heywood (The Pretenders, Ray LaMontagne).

In early 2010, Seven Saturdays released a self-titled EP which Stereogum described as "gripping and mellowly epic" and spent 6 weeks on CMJ's Top 200 Radio charts. Now Haskell is releasing the Secret Things remix EP, which includes a reworked track by Sun Airway that Pitchfork described as "sparkling" (other contributers are: Memoryhouse, White Sea, Teen Daze, Houses and Millionyoung), and a collection of ambient recordings entitled Love In The Time Of Anticipated Defeat, out April 28 on Dynamophone Records.
