The American Analog Set – Know by Heart (2001)


You are a book for me to read
Line after line I read on and on
You are a film for me to see
A string of frames that just goes on and on and on

And of all the places that I’ve been
Name after name, it just goes on and on
You are a song for me to sing
A string of verses that goes on and on and on

(Know by Heart)

Review: The American Analog Set is one of the few bands that manages to be simple, but sounds like no other band out there. They’re also one of the few bands I bought real hard-copy CDs of. Most critics complain that after six albums, they still haven’t done anything to their sound. For me, that’s a good thing. “Know by Heart” can be considered as their breakthrough record, combining their post-rock/shoe-gaze/kraut-rock influence with pop sensibilities and memorable songwriting. For the rest of us, AmAnSet weaves long dreamy passages with moving melodies that have a seamless progression. Check out the beautifully done video. (Taken from their fifth album “Promise of Love”)
