about

Let us welcome you to the latest sun-filled, space funk masterwork by AM & Shawn Lee: La Musique Numerique (French for Digital Music).

AM & Shawn Lee bring us their second full length LP which blends 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.

Track Name: Two Times
Two Times

both sides
and in the middle
looks like everyone's hiding
two times
once in the middle

both sides
and in the middle
i find everyone's lying
two times
once in the middle

both sides
and in the middle
looks like everyone's hiding
two times
once in the middle

we know by now
been waiting too long
we know by now
they're going way too far
Track Name: All The Love
ALL THE LOVE
Music by AM & Shawn Lee
Lyrics by AM
Publishing Celestial Electric Music (ASCAP)

i

watch your life

what you take

what you're set on

what

i don't have

it's been going on too long



throw it to the side

i can't take it

i just want to say



can you give me all the love in your life

can you give me all the love in your life

can you give me all the love in your life

can you give me all the love all the love in your life



can you give me all the love in your life

can you give me all the love in your life life life

can you give me all the love in your life

can you give me all the love in your life



how

you decide

what to keep and push away

signs

of love

you're giving up

or am i dreaming

you

you don't know

what you're passing down the line



say it isn't so

are you faking

i don't want to know

throw it to the side

i can't take it

i just want to say



repeat chorus



i

watch your life

what you take

i don't even know your name

it's too late

it's been going on too long



throw it to the side

i can't take it

i just want to say



repeat chorus
Track Name: Good Blood
Good Blood

calling out i need to know your name
and i'm hoping that you feel it too
but i'm not waiting for a sign
and i'm hoping i'm the one you'll choose
step down i'll carry you along
let's go off alone and tell our tales
it doesn't matter if we lose control
because together we could never fail

ooooooooh

when i take the trip into your eyes
i want to find out everything you feel
it didn't take me long to figure out
you were the one thing that i was missing
aren't we all just trying to survive
spinning our own wheels until the end
so why don't we just let ourselves align
with a future we can both believe in

oooooooooh
Track Name: Suffer Like Me
Suffer Like Me

why don't you see who is right in front of you
they still succeed while the low end suffer like suffer like me
time to stop your losing fight
why can't you see that we're due for a second time second time
i can't believe what's happening
why can't we be recognized for wanting to wanting to see
all the crooks come tumbling
and they can perceive how it feels to suffer like suffer like me

run
far away
your silence
speaks volumes
but we
we can hear what you say what you say what you say what you say

i can't believe this is really happening
why can't we be recognized for wanting to wanting to see
all the crooks come tumbling
and they can perceive what it's like to suffer like suffer like me

why don't you see who is right in front of you
they still succeed while the low end suffer like suffer like me
time to stop your losing fight
why can't you see that we're due for a second time second time

i can't believe what's happening
why can't we be recognized for wanting to wanting to see
all the crooks come tumbling
and they can perceive how it feels to suffer like suffer like me
Track Name: Replay
Replay

you say
it's late
hold tight
replay

so tied up
am i letting the lights go dim
take it on
but i don't recognize what i'm in

ooh

so tied up
am i letting the lights do dim
take it on
but i don't recognize what i'm in

ooh
Track Name: In The Aftermath
In The Aftermath

habits die
we timed out
moved on through to nothing
in the aftermath
all worn out
wonder if we had something

but we should not suffer
we just waited too long
waited too long
to uncover

how could we
how could we
how could we have known
what we would find
we believed the tale
we couldn't see the signs

and we'll get by
even out
and we'll look back to something
with a single word
and common ground
we'll be relieved and honest

cuz we should not suffer
we just waited too long
we waited too long
to uncover

how could we
how could we
how could we have known
what we would find
we believed the tale
we couldn't see the signs

and we should not suffer
we just waited too long
we waited too long
to uncover

how could we
how could we
how could we have known
what we would find
we believed the tale
we couldn't see the signs
Track Name: Automatic
Automatic

you're in automatic
and i can't believe
it's becoming thematic
it's all you can see
now it's a tragedy watching you lie
even to me

i see the changes in your design
and it's the cause that's driving me wild
i see the changes in your design
it doesn't seem you'll be ever be satisfied

your being fanatic
like there's nothing to lose
did you think it was magic
and we'd never know
what it could do
Track Name: Iron Leaf
Iron Leaf

i wanna follow you
have we come undone
it’s on the boarderline
so what will we become

what is it that leads leads leads me away

i wanna follow you
i don’t want to run
from what you've given me
from who i want to become
to become
there’s certain lies
i tried to tell myself
and there were certain needs
but there is nobody else

what is it that leads leads leads me away

what is it that leads leads leads me away
it’s taken all this time time time to say

i wanna follow you
i don’t want to run
from what you’ve given me
from who I want to become
to become
it’s boarderline
criminal behavior
and in uncertain times
i need to be close to you
close to you
close to you
close to you
close to you
close to you
close to you
close to you
close to you
close to you
close to you
close to you
close to you
Track Name: Louna
Louna

you can help me to see the light
the sun and the moon and the open skies
you must be from a different time
so why don't you show me what you have in mind

bring me with you on your odyssey
i want to believe in this unity
another party another city
i want to be with you in every scene

and there's no denyin'
hah hah
and there's no denyin'
hah hah
cuz it's only natural
to want to know the road you're on
and it's only natural
to want to know the road you're on

i don't know where i am at today
woke up alone and i'm on my way
sometimes i wait for what you will say
a lie and a kiss and i seem to sway

take me with you to the other side
i am willing to sacrifice
i know you will never compromise
but why don't you show me what you have in mind

i want it to be like in the movies
swept up in a dream with a perfect ending
i hope you will see i'm the one you need
you know i will give you my everything

some people say that it's suicide
but i don't believe it and i've got the time
i'm not living only to survive
i want what i want and it's you i like

repeat chorus

i don't know where i am at today
woke up alone and i'm on my way
sometimes i wait for what you will say
a lie and a kiss and i seem to sway

take me with you to the other side
i am willing to sacrifice
i know you will never compromise
so why don't you show me what you have in mind
Track Name: Come Back To Me
Come Back To Me

i'd erase you only if i could
my mind won't listen to everything it should
even if i stick around will it ever take
am i just living lies should i even wait

cuz i still believe
you won't deceive
you wouldn't hide
what you need
i can't decide
what to perceive
what to deny
am i too late
i may not succeed
but i won't subside
cuz i still believe
you'll come back to me
you’ll come back to me

and i can't listen to what the others talk about
but it's getting so much harder to shut it out
space will untie us, unite us you say
but it seems what you really want is to get away

but i still believe
you won't deceive
you wouldn't hide
what you need
i can't decide
what to perceive
what to deny
am i too late
i may not succeed
but i won't subside
cuz i still believe
you'll come back to me
you’ll come back to me

the signs are brighter to everyone but me
but i'm still believing in every little thing
i can't make a move, maybe i'm afraid
i'm still stuck in the middle can't go either way

cuz i still believe
you won't deceive
you wouldn't hide
what you need
i can't decide
what to perceive
what to deny
am i too late
i may not succeed
but i won't subside
cuz i still believe
you'll come back to me
you’ll come back to me
you’ll come back to me
you’ll come back to me
you’ll come back to me
Track Name: Steppin' Out
Steppin’ Out

now
the mist across the window hides the lines
but nothing hides the color of the lights that shine
electricity so fine
look and dry your eyes

me babe, steppin’ out
into the light, into the light

we
so tired of all the darkness in our lives
with no more angry words to say can come alive
get into a car and drive
to the other side

me babe, steppin' out
into the night, into the light
you babe, steppin' out
into the night, into the light

we
are young but getting old before our time
we'll leave the t.v. and the radio behind
don't you wonder what we'll find
steppin' out tonight

steppin’ out
into the light

you can dress in pink and blue just like a child
and in a yellow taxi turn to me and smile
we'll be there in just a while
if you follow me

me babe, steppin' out
into the night, into the light
you babe, steppin' out
into the night, into the light

me babe, steppin' out
into the night, into the light
you babe, steppin' out
into the night, into the light

me babe, steppin' out
into the night, into the light
you babe, steppin' out
into the night, into the light
