Video director, co-producer, and editor Wilfred Driscoll was inspired to create the original animation video using the hand-drawn techniques and art style of the late 1970s early 1980’s educational cartoons we all grew up with on PBS and the link. He explains: “It was important to remain true to the style that inspires AM & Shawn Lee: all artwork was created by hand and took about 3 weeks. While the animation took place digitally, we maintained the look and feel of the cartoons of the time. The song “Come Back to Me’ set the mood, bringing us all to a place of nostalgia and wonder. The spacey atmosphere of the song is what tied these two characters together; a lonely planet and an experienced wacky space traveler.”
The band followed up La Musique Numerique with a new remix album last month entitled Replayed, which features mixes from psychedelic-soul band Monophonics (who join AM & Shawn Lee in San Francisco), German duo Ancient Astronauts, London’s JetTricks, LA-based producer I, Ced (who has worked with DâM FunK & Shuggie Otis), and more. Thievery Corporation’s Rob Garza also released a remix of AM & Shawn Lee’s “Promises Are Never Far From Lies” on his new album.
