The Layover EP

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Matt Rinaldi
A year after his acclaimed solo LP The Weatherman, the respected West Coast MC/producer known as Evidence lays off the Pro Tools and takes a turn on the mike on this EP release. The Layover began life as a five-song collaboration project with North Carolina beatsmith Khrysis, an idea the two had while on tour with Little Brother.

All Music Guide - Matt Rinaldi
A year after his acclaimed solo LP The Weatherman, the respected West Coast MC/producer known as Evidence lays off the Pro Tools and takes a turn on the mike on this EP release. The Layover began life as a five-song collaboration project with North Carolina beatsmith Khrysis, an idea the two had while on tour with Little Brother.

With a narrative centered on a weary Ev stuck in an airport waiting on a never-ending flight delay, The Layover allows the Dilated lyricist to stretch his Weatherman concept on tracks like "Rain or Shine" and "The Cold Weather."
