The American Analog Set (colloquially, AmAnSet) is an Austin, Texas-based American indie rock band. The group is led by singer/ songwriter/ guitarist Andrew Kenny. Additional members include, or have included, Lee Gillespie, Mark Smith, Craig McCaffrey, Tom Hoff, Lisa "Farfisa Lisa" Roschmann, and Sean Ripple. (Founding member Roschmann left the band in late 1999. Hoff and Ripple joined in early 2000. McCaffery replaced Hoff in 2003.) The band's name derives from its preference for analog rather than digital recording media.
Formed in 1995, the group's early sound was highly influenced by krautrock and post rock, often featuring long instrumental passages. Over time, their songs became shorter and more pop-influenced. The band has released six full-length albums, four EPs, and several vinyl singles.
In October 2005, rumours began spreading across the internet that the group was on the verge of disbanding. The band quickly refuted such rumours, but added that they may not tour again due to their obligations with other projects.
Their last album, 2005's Set Free, was released in North America by Canadian record label Arts & Crafts.
