Wax Poetics Records introduces Young Gun Silver Fox and their debut album, West End Coast. Stream the entire album below. Purchase the vinyl now. Download it on iTunes.

West End Coast picks up where Daft Punk’s “Fragments of Time” left off—with a modern reimagining of the classic West Coast AOR studio sound of the mid- to late ’70s, when soulful and slick soft rock ruled the FM airwaves. This peak era of sophisticated analog production and stellar musicianship and songwriting produced iconic vibes from artists like Loggins & Messina, Fleetwood Mac, Steely Dan, the Doobie Brothers, Hall & Oates, Carly Simon, Ambrosia, America, and more.

Young Gun Silver fox is made up of singer-songwriter Andy Platts of U.K. soul-rock band Mamas Gun and multi-instrumentalist producer Shawn Lee, an American expat who has made a name for himself in the group AM & Shawn Lee, as well as his solo outfit, Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong Orchestra (see the massively popular and often-licensed “Kiss the Sky” featuring Nino Moschella). With West End Coast, the duo has created a wholly authentic homage to the golden age of California pop—written and recorded in cloudy London.
