AM & Shawn Lee bring us their new full length LP La Musique Numérique: a sun-filled, space funk masterwork blending early digital technology with decade blurring songwriting transporting listeners deeper into the sonic 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.
Album lead off “Two Times” introduces a Sleng Teng Riddim influenced sex groove complete with unexpected synth jabs and smooth soulful vocals while a rendition of Joe Jackson’s 1982 hit “Steppin’ Out” sees the new wave classic taken deeper into the cosmos.
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.
