Drawing from myriad genres, AM‘s sonic creations, which rely heavily on well-arranged and well-executed full band sound, evoke comfortable reminiscence and – dare I say it – easy listening, not in the elevator sense, but in the sense of not aggressively in-your-face, rather pleasantly uplifting pop you can work to, answer the phone by, kick back in with company or solo plus a glass of wine, or enjoy while out on a Sunday drive. AM creates a current good vibe while borrowing the best from masters like the Beatles and Curtis Mayfield.
Check out all the live tracks (jump down after the video), and don’t miss Jorge Ben, a groovy instrumental named for Brazilian pop samba-rocker, over which it’d be no surprise to encounter the voice of Isaac Hayes.
AM’s latest record: Future Sons & Daughters (2/9/2010, Filter US). Catch AM on tour now with French electro-popsters Air. In April, AM goes out again on dates with actress/singer, Charlotte Gainsbourg.
