AM & SHAWN LEE (album release party!)

La Musique Numerique (French for Digital Music) is the second full-length record from Los Angeles/ London electro soul duo AM & Shawn Lee. Drawing heavily on late 70's French library, 80's Italo Disco and Sleng Teng dancehall riddims, La Musique Numerique pays homage to the beginnings of the digital realm often employing recording equipment from the era (Simmons drums, period drum machines and first generation digital effects). Themes of the album address new love (Good Blood), addiction (Automatic) and worldwide economic bitterness (Two Times, Suffer Like Me) and faintly calls to mind The Clash, early Scritti Politti, Grace Jones, Tom Tom Club, and Sly & Robbie. Of course all of this is laced with AM & Shawn Lee's funky, fun and psychedelic charisma.

New Orleans-bred, L.A.-based tunesmith AM has won widespread acclaim by merging pop, soul, folk, R&B and psychedelia into highly personalized songcraft. He has released several albums on various labels (including Future Sons & Daughters on Filter US Recordings), he spent the last few years out on the road touring with AIR, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and legendary Brazilian tropicalia icon Caetano Veloso.

Kansas-born, London-based composer/producer/instrumentalist Shawn Lee has established a reputation as a mischievous sonic innovator and one of the most sampled artists in Hip Hop, releasing more than twenty genre-spanning albums of his original material, usually as Shawn Lee's Ping Pong Orchestra. He has recorded projects with artists such as Clutchy Hopkins, Saint Etienne, Arthur Verocai, Greyboy, Coldcut, Tony Joe White, Darondo, Money Mark and Tommy Guerrero and share the stage with bands such as Phoenix, Sigur Ros, Kings Of Convenience, and Bonnie Prince Billy. He is an award winning video game music composer and winner of the award for best original music for the video game "Bully" by Gamespot and nominated for best original score from Spike VGA (video game awards).

Chicano Batman

Chicano Batman is your sonic outlet from the monotonous back into the soul. Ethnomusicologists in their own right, they are students of rhythm, globe trotting on a quest to reclaim and represent the musical roots of their past generations. Drawing from a broad range of 60s and early 70s Brazilian bossa nova and samba, spacey psychedelia, slow-jam soul with a pinch of surf-rock cumbia, the quartet uniforms their act in retro ruffled-tuxedo shirts from a thrift store near you. Chicano Batman is more than a musical force but an adventurous and opinionated superhero who feeds off of community, afro-centricity and bolillos, on a mission to bring the overlooked to the forefront.
