AM & SHAWN LEE
The transatlantic duo AM & Shawn Lee journey forward via the past on their new album Outlines, digging heavily into their personal collections of obscure soul, sound Library and Soundtracks for inspiration and re-imagining them through a pop lens. Sonically Outlines tips it's hat to classic synthesized soul productions. From "Persuasion"'s deep funk groove and staccato vocal stylings to the sinister synths in "Cold Tears" or the demented aerobic pop of "Nightshine" AM & Shawn Lee's Outlines delivers perfect minimalist, future soul.
"Two great tastes that taste great together." --KCRW
"Perfect soundtrack leading up to the summer" --Urb
"This newest release is their strongest to date." --Wax Poetics
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.
Synth meets rock meets fun.
