Last year, Thievery Corporation picked AM & Shawn Lee to join them on tour. While the style of the two bands definitely can’t be confused, there’s something infectiously catchy here that leads me to believe Thievery made a wise choice.
“Somebody Like You” comes off the band’s latest album Celestial Electric, releasedin April of this year. To quote the band:
Celestial Electric, the first-ever collaboration by AM & Shawn Lee, sounds like summer, a drive along the beach, a packed nightclub at one o’clock in morning, a hot funky groove coming through the speakers of a hi-fi stereo via 1972…or maybe ’82. The album marks a creative milestone for both artists, offering timeless, deeply compelling music that showcases the duo’s remarkable creative chemistry.
