New Release: Shawn Lee – ‘Synthesizers In Space’

 

Master music dude Shawn Lee has output over 30 albums to date and now has released another texturally appetizing mix of sounds called Synthesizers In Space. Lee shares himself on the project:

“There’s a lot more to this album than the title implies,” he explains. “I use a lot of keyboards, but it’s not wall-to-wall synthesizers. The foundation is drumming – real drums played in real time – and captured on analog tape for that crusty, magnetic sound that I like.”

Stream the entire project below and be sure to take a listen to our favorite tune, “Black Hole.”

Aug 22 Cafe Du Nord, San Francisco, CA
Aug 24 The Satellite, Los Angeles, CA
Aug 25 La Cave, Costa Mesa, CA
