"This is folktronica duo rist's debut album weekend, which was amazingly conceived when they were on a week-long vacation, recording one track per day. Like the relaxing tranquility of a well-deserved holiday, weekend showcases 10 tracks of ethereally entrancing music that presents the beautiful compositional capabilities of rist, merging heart-warming musical prowess with a delicate, captivating sensibility. An enthralling musical journey filled with layers of dreamy Rhodes and piano, tripping guitars, chromatic glockenspiel, enchanting beats and percussions, peace flute and bright synthesizers. Fusing various instrumental sounds together with expert subtle beat programming, weekend trails the beauty of simplicity, building minimal wondrous soundscapes, bringing a comforting serenity, a calming splendour that gently soothes and charms, drawing from the most subtle sublime touches of urban reality. Also on this album are the masterfully remixed works by some of today's most esteemed folktronica musicians and composers, namely Taunus from Germany, .tape. from Spain, as well as Greg Davis from the United States."
