AllMusic Review by

Assemble and Plug combines an album and EP (Assemble and Plug, respectively) from the excellent Swedish indie band Carpet People. The album expands on the solid sound of Volley U Make, taking huge steps in making it more crafted, dynamic, and varied -- the band frequently lays off of the big rock conventions and moves into more structured and dynamic work that's hugely appealing. The Plug EP reflects a more minimalistic, low-fi sound that's equally effective; together, the package stands as a very notable release, and will certainly appeal to the Sebadoh end of American-indie fandom.
