La Musique Numerique

La Musique Numerique (French for Digital Music) is our second full length album from our inspired collaboration we so creatively entitled "AM & Shawn Lee". The new album blends early digital technology with decade blurring songwriting transporting listeners deeper into the sonic vinyl crates from which the music was born.

However these out-sound influences aren’t plugged into a computer program and spit out through modern day micro technology. The instruments are played, the vocals are sung and the songs are written, proving an even stronger connection to the past.

La Musique Numerique’s interstellar journey takes you in and out of faded memories of disco, funk, soul and reggae but never sets foot on any of these planets; never colonizes one style. It is, in effect, pure AM & Shawn Lee.

AM & Shawn Lee en France!
24 avril : Club Silencio (Paris) 26 avril : Printemps de Bourges 27 avril : Nouveau Casino (Paris)

For the Shawn Lee feature, it will be necessary to wait for April 9th, the release date of the disc which already promises to fill our ears with 18 announced tracks, to transitions that seem more worked on the CD version. In the meantime, you have the opportunity to hear about the financial campaign launched via PledgeMusic by the Londonian in order to give body to his second collaborative LP with the Californian AM, a pair that has already achieved recent success with Celestial Electric.
In order to do this, a single address but multiple possibilities. There will be something for all budgets, from a simple preview download to financing entire tours by acquiring a lot of personal items, such as Shawn Lee’s famous tiger mask (yes yes) or a track composed for you and given the name you choose– Louna, one of the personalized songs issued during the campaign for the preceding opus, listen via the small integrated drive on the left of the page, will find itself on the new album.
Note that 10% of the money collected will go to Echo Park Animal Alliance, a community that helps abandoned pets and other endangered birds.
To end, the next French dates for AM & Shawn Lee, while waiting for their return to Europe expected in September if your investments permit them:

Attendez un moment. Nous sommes à côté d’AIR?? Chouette. Merci à Rolling Stone France! 
“…rétro, inspirée des musiques de films des années 70, s’appuie sur des  lignes de basse accrocheuses, illuminés de guitares et claviers aux  effets psychédéliques. …Leurs multiples influences confèrent à Celestial  Electric des atmosphères aussi rêveuses que dansantes.” -J.G., Rolling  Stone France Review , 3 ½ Stars *** 1/2
ENGLISH TRANSLATION “…retro-pop, inspired by ‘70s film music, depends on the catchy base  lines, illuminated with guitars and keys with psychedelic effects.  Hippie-funk, soft rock, disco groove…their multiple influences give  Celestial Electric an atmosphere as dreamy as dancing. ” –Rolling Stone France, 3.5 Stars

In translation:
AM and Shawn Lee arrive in Paris this week to take you into their rock group. 

Perhaps neither their name nor music says anything to you, and yet this new pop formation presents its first successful and captivating album Celestial Electric. Their name? AM and Shawn Lee, a duo formed by Mr. Lee, composer and renowned multi-instrumentalist, and AM, singer with a hypnotic voice. 
 
The meeting? It’s AM who’s the cause of the collaboration, since it’s he who contacted Shawn Lee via Myspace, and we don’t regret the union. Their first opus is a beautiful invitation on a cosmic journey. It offers a simple way to a galaxy of multiple influences. A duality of style and of sounds which mix energetic pop and psychedelic rock.
 
From the first listen, we are transported by catchy bass lines and cosmic keys. From gliding guitar solos on “City Boy” to the more rock spheres of “Somebody Like You,” the thread of this charming bric-a-brac is surely the retro spirit which is vested in every song. Probably brought by Shawn Lee (unavoidable when you’ve worked with Jeff Buckley) this small side nostalgic road trip in the Midwest is not unpleasant and recalls the ghosts of Laurel Canyon. You can find their tracks here.
