“Why no fade outs?” Pure clever question, but the way Andy Platts and Shawn Lee answer it shows why they write such great songs together. They don’t make it easy for themselves. They play with their band Young Gun Silver Fox the sort of grown-up pop music that culminated in a mélange of jazz chords, hippie choirs, and muted funk beats in the late ’70s. Extremely difficult to play, even harder to write, and then it all has to sound cheerful and relaxed. But when you listen, you immediately start bouncing and humming along. Towards the end of the happy songs, a chorus with cheering wind instruments or a solo usually stretched out into eternity until the sound engineer pulled the fader down to fade out. fade out. On their new album, nine of the ten songs end with a final chord. Very modern.
