Assembly of Dust
with guests:
Strange Folk Acoustic Duo
American Jubilee

While "demonic schemes" may not come to mind when you think of Assembly of Dust, Genauer's post-Strangefolk crew since 2002, his band's latest album does have the feeling of something remarkable being unleashed. The record, recorded over two years, showcases Genauer's maturation as a songwriter, as evidenced both by the material and the all-star collaborations that dot 12 of the 13 tracks. It's rare to hear something so massive in scope and ambition, and yet so intricate in the tiny details. Despite the number of guest musicians, AOD's second studio record is incredibly focused, and one that deservedly earns comparisons to The Band, Neil Young, recent Wilco and even The Beatles (the latter two cited by Genauer as strong inspirations on the group's new material). And it's a daring album, showing off both their singer's lyrical acumen and the band's ever-expanding musical palette.
