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.
