American Analog Set

Post-rock is one of those genres that is hard to describe but easy to spot when you hear it. It generally has a light jazz feel swirling in the background over a hefty plate of warm vocals and guitar noodling. American Analog Set clearly falls into this category (except that they are out of Texas rather than Chicago).

If you like the Sea & Cake (particularly their first few albums) then there is a good chance that you'll enjoy these fellows.

Well, they have a new album titled Set Free coming out September 20th and they've generously put one of the new tracks on their website. Plus, they put a live recording of "Punk as Fuck" (the original version is on their great 2001 release Know By Heart). It was recorded in Houston the day after 9/11.
