The American Analog Set
Music Review  September 16, 2005, by Melanie Haupt
"...American Analog Set..."

Spotlight: The American Analog Set
1am, Blender Bar at the Ritz
Music Story  March 18, 2005, by Darcie Stevens
"...As Mark Smith's brushes scratch the snare, Sean Ripple's vibes ring out, and Lee Gillespie's subtle low-end hums, American Analog Set slowly pulls the twilight out of the day. The Austin-based quintet, with keyboardist Craig McCaffery in Chicago and honey-sweet vocalist and guitarist Andrew Kenny in NYC, is an addictive aura of drowsy soundscapes...."

The American Analog Set at 10: end of part one
Music Story  September 16, 2005, by Darcie Stevens
"...He stretches and recoils with the cool brisk flow of the drums, pulsating as the bass hums to itself. He's surrounded by family on stage, and that's only one testament to the soundness of American Analog Set...."

Not Rocking
The American Analog Set
Music Story  February 28, 1997, by Raoul Hernandez
"...No, they certainly do not rock. One listen to The American Analog Set's debut, The Fun of Watching Fireworks, released last year on Trance Syndicate/Emperor Jones confirms that loud and....."

Free as a Bird
Andrew Kenny, leader of the American Analog Set, watches his phoenix rising in the Wooden Birds
Music Story  August 12, 2011, by Doug Freeman
"...It ended the way they had planned: one final album, one final tour, and one final show at an intimate hometown venue. As the American Analog Set swaddled the Parish with its rhythmic lull that December night in 2005, Andrew Kenny stood out in front of the local quintet once more, letting the low-ringing notes to "She's Half" linger in the dead silent room, his voice a slight, frail whisper sliding into darkness...."

The Final Frontier
Space Is the Place
Music Story  December 6, 1996, by Greg Beets
"..."Whatever's happening is definitely good," says Craig Stewart of Trance Syndicate, home of fellow travelers like American Analog Set and Furry Things. "But I don't know about this term `Space Rock.' It's an incredibly broad category. When I think of `Space Rock,' I think of just dropping out a lot of the normal elements of whatever makes up rock..."

Jesus Gonna Be Here
Johnny Toxic
Music Story  March 25, 1999
"...As the lone musician alongside a bevy of industry suits on the "What Is Jazz?" panel, Russell Gunn was asked by moderator and Blue Note Records President Bruce Lundvall to open the discussion with his thoughts on the topic at hand. The young trumpeter's remarks were perhaps the most insightful and succinct of the day: "Jazz is music that is constantly changing; if it's not changing and not reflecting the sounds of the street, it's not jazz." The previous night Gunn had put these words into action with a groove-heavy set that practically tore the roof off the venerable Victory Grill..."

Texas Platters
Music Review  July 11, 1997
"...It's just a convenient way to snag well-deserved attention for his first two pure-heart albums, Cheatin' Heart Attack and Blessed or Damned. But last summer, Watson set out on a marathon tour of truckstops across America and that experience has forever given his songwriting and singing a patina that barely shone on the first recordings..."

Dancing About Architecture
Hole is on hold, as is Abra Moore's new album, though American Analog Set may be dead and the Mercury's Hip Hop Humpday is definitely. Meanwhile, John Kunz fights back, and Don Imus raises the Flatlanders flag. Whew!
Music Column  July 26, 2002, by Ken Lieck
"...Saying that what he's concerned about is the matter of having a "level playing field," Waterloo Records owner John Kunz has been up in arms lately about the in-development block catty-corner to the 'Loo. Though the worst-case scenario, that of a Virgin Megastore there, doesn't seem to be coming to pass, both Kunz and the nearby BookPeople are upset over the news that a Borders Books & Music franchise shop is apparently going to be one of the businesses in the new center..."

The American Analog Set, Paul Newman

Music Story  March 14, 1997
"...VOLEBEATS: Few bands in the alt-country realm pull on the heartstrings by the sheer strength of melody as deftly as the Volebeats. The Detroit band's new disc, The Sky and the Ocean, its second on the Safe House label, chimes, rings, and radiates with songs that shine like a summer sunset; on a previous EP, they even managed to turn Barry White into pure pop..."

The Other One
Music Story  August 12, 2011, by Doug Freeman
"...Kenny and Sisson have a long history of collaboration, stretching back to Kenny recording her first home demos and Sisson later contributing to American Analog Set's 1999 breakout, The Golden Band. When she joined the Wooden Birds, there was a natural thread for her in the songwriting and sound...."

"...Imagine Johnny Cougar with a drum machine. All told, it was the return of Austin's American Analog Set that gleamed..."

The American Analog Set
Music Review  October 19, 2001, by Michael Chamy
"...American Analog SetKnow by Heart (Tiger Style) Normally, Austin's American Analog Set isn't a band you listen to when you want to get things accomplished. Usually it engenders just sitting around listening to the leaves rustle, maybe shuffling through some papers..."

SXSW Picks & Sleepers
Blurbing SXSW 04 music – Wednesday only
Music Story  March 12, 2004
"...Pesky quartet Bedbug kicks off the Tight Spot portion, readying Kiss You on the Lips, the follow-up to 2001's Pavement-ish Happiest of Hours. Subset kicks the daylights out of Death Cab for Cutie with a tart power pop mix found on last year's Dueling Devotions that resonates with the suburban kids as well as the club junkies..."

Thursday Showcases
All the SXSW showcases that fit
Music Story  March 19, 2010
"...This year highlights the label's latest finds and one tried troubadour. Though not yet officially inducted into the roster, Seattle quartet the Globes gets hometown placement to open, subdued and melodic rock settling easily on the northwest's Sunny Day Real Estate..."

Texas Platters
The Scabs
Music Story  July 29, 1999
"...The live souvenir business has been good to the Scabs and the Scabs are pretty good about their live souvenirs. Part of the Scabs' strategy for keeping large crowds coming back week after week is a deep, ever-changing set list and More Than a Feeling reflects frontman Bob Schneider's prolific songwriting well with 18 new tunes..."

Braver Newer World
The Year in Albums
Music Story  January 10, 1997, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Nothing, however, could revive "alternative rock" in '96, with Pearl Jam's wannabe punk disaster No Code being indicative of the genre's collapse; face it, "grunge" was merely a by-product of Nirvana's punk revival, and because that type of anger and angst burn bright but brief, popular music has settled back into middle-of-the-road hokum like Sheryl Crow, the Linda Ronstadt of the Nineties. Not that this was necessarily a bad place to be since ol' stalwarts like John Mellencamp, R.E.M., Neil Young, Patti Smith, and Richard Thompson all made strong forays into the marketplace..."
