Songs from the Red Room
A-Set’s compositions stand on their own power not because of a wide base or strong attachments to the ground, but because everything about them seems oddly balanced. Awkward turns of melody or voice are soon complemented by refreshing sprays of harmony. “A Day and the Weight” slaps on fresh riffs on a stuttering drum line and haunting vocals. Built To Spill fans, take note.
