The Weeks are a band from Jackson, Mississippi that formed in 2006. Members include Cyle Barnes (vocals), Samuel Williams (guitar, vocals), Cain Barnes (drums) and Damien Bone (bass). Easy is their third studio album release.

Easy, by The Weeks, is an extremely likable classic rock flavored experience. If I had to make a comparison, I would say that the music sounds like a cross between The Hold Steady and Pearl Jam. Most of the record is lively and full of infectious energy, and it must be contagious because I still have hooks from songs that's been looping in my head all day. Some of my favorite singles include "Talk Like That," "Ike," "Start It Up," "Hands On The Radio," "Bottle Rocket," and "Sevens." Hearing Easy for the first time was a delightful surprise, and although it isn't perfect, in the end, you'll find that most of the album rings a great deal of fun. There's just enough thrill and potency here to make it worth a listen.
