World Cafe Next: Young Gun Silver Fox

Young Gun Silver Fox.
Young Gun Silver Fox.

Young Gun Silver Fox is a hard-to-resist duo. One member (singer-songwriter Andy Platts) is from California, while the other (multi-instrumentalist Shawn Lee) hails from London; fittingly, the duo's debut is called West End Coast.

You'll recognize the sound — as the band's label, Wax Poetics Records, puts it, it's a "modern re-imagining of the classic West Coast AOR studio sound of the mid- to late '70s." In other words: yacht rock. With these new songs, Platts and Lee have lovingly recreated a sound and vibe from the past. Hear "You Can Feel It" and "Distance Between Us" in the audio segment above.
