AM — Future Sons & Daughters

They describe the sound of ‘AM’ as indie/lounge/Pop. Me thinks that’s pretty darn close!  While the style might seem a ‘turn-off’ to my savvy readers, it is gently intriguing and just feels good. Give the song “Darker Days’ a listen and download. One more song, ‘When The Dust Settles’  is for your listening pleasure. Some of the tunes at the end of this album are acoustic versions and ‘Fortunate Family Tree’—as well as ‘When The Dust Settles’—have a full sounding western guitar vibe that to these ears, is quite nice.      

AM – Darker Days

AM – When The Dust Settles

BIO from Facebook: Tulsa-born and New Orleans-raised, indie artist AM brings a heady brew of twanging Americana, twinkling Anglified folk-rock-pop, caressing Philly soul and funky R&B whatchacallit — and, best of all, joyously unheard points in-between. AM does all this with an acute, finessing ear for the ancient art of real, true songcraft. Sure, AM’s very personal brand of pop is sturdily built, but so are Mack trucks. What we’d like to point your attention to are the brashly bold new shapes he brings to bear on the modern pop song, with, arguably, some of the best bridges and choruses in the bizness. Superbly, subtly drawn arrangements of said material, whether drawing from the Beatles and Badfinger or Curtis Mayfield and Jorge Ben, demonstrate over and again this simple fact of songwriting life: that Imagination and taste is what it’s all about . . . and these are, of course, things you couldn’t buy with all the gold in the realm. If you watch the tele maybe you’ve heard AM’s tunes on HBO’s “Big LoveMTV “The Hills”, ABC’s “Brothers and Sisters”.
