AM & Shawn Lee: Outlines (Celestial Electric Music)

AM & Shawn Lee Outlines (Celestial Electric Music)

The transatlantic union of Los Angeles’ AM and London’s Shawn Lee produces a third full-length of the pair’s signature ’70s-influenced, soulful, spacey grooves. Outlines takes its cues from soundtracks, but its distinction is in its funky pop bent. Album opener “Persuasion” sets the tone with a raindrop-like synth pattern and saucy beat, picked up in the twangy synths of “In Moments” with AM’s falsetto hitting highs on the chorus.

Listen to the whole album via SoundCloud.
