Artist Bio:

From Wikipedia The American Analog Set (sometimes referred to as AmAnSet) is an Austin-based indie rock band. They have released 6 studio albums, on the record labels Emperor Jones and Tiger Style, with their latest (Set Free) on Arts & Crafts. Formed in 1995, the group's early sound was highly influenced by krautrock and post-rock and British shoe-gazer bands like Cocteau Twins, often featuring long instrumental passages. Over time, their songs became shorter and more pop-influenced. The band has released six full-length albums, four EPs, and several vinyl singles. The group is led by singer/ songwriter/ guitarist Andrew Kenny. Additional members include, or have included, Lee Gillespie, Mark Smith, Craig McCaffrey, Tom Hoff, Lisa Roschmann, and Sean Ripple. Founding member Roschmann left the band in late 1999; Hoff and Ripple joined in early 2000 and McCaffery replaced Hoff in 2003. In October 2005, rumors began spreading across the Internet that the group was on the verge of disbanding. The band quickly refuted such rumors, but added that they may not tour again due to their obligations with other projects. Their latest album, 2005's Set Free, was released in North America by Canadian record label Arts & Crafts.[Read More]
