AM & Shawn Lee - Celestial Electric

Show some gratitude...

On the face of it, the thought of these two songsmiths bonding over a “mutual love of vintage French and Italian library and film music” doesn’t fill one with hope of an overexciting collaboration. Following this revelation, LA-based AM and London-based Lee began collaborating via transatlantic file-sharing. Lee, who has worked with a diversity of acts from Jeff Buckley to Gilles Peterson, continues his proclivity for sonic innovation with a plethora of funky grooves and drum lines - with no loops in earshot. AM’s psychedelic guitar licks, basslines and vocals underpin an overriding ’60s vibe. Show some gratitude to French and Italian library.
