If you know me you'd probably not be surprised that I'd be voting for Ass as album of the week. Not for it's musical content you'd think. Oh no. You'd be thinking that I'm 2 things.... 1) that I'm puerile (I won't deny that one) and 2) that I like ass (hey you got me there... I'm human and I like a nice ass). Fortunately after whacking this on I fell in love with it on first listen. Andreas Soders ...

9/10 Phil Staff review, 14 May 2008
If you know me you'd probably not be surprised that I'd be voting for Ass as album of the week. Not for it's musical content you'd think. Oh no. You'd be thinking that I'm 2 things.... 1) that I'm puerile (I won't deny that one) and 2) that I like ass (hey you got me there... I'm human and I like a nice ass). Fortunately after whacking this on I fell in love with it on first listen. Andreas Soderstrom Solo (hence the Ass moniker) has come up with a belting album of finger plucking folk/ singer songwriter gear. If his name seems familiar then you may recognise him as having played with Tape, Blood Music and Taken By Trees. It's an enormous ride through fields of beauty and huge crashing waves of emotion. You'd need some kind of super special vehicle that could cope on land and sea and fortunately this dude seems to have one. Musically (to my humble ears) it's a mish mash of folks like John Fahey, Steffen Basho Junghans and Jose Gonzales (only really Jose for the handful of tracks with vocals) and it's alarmingly good. The genre of guitar finger pluckers tend to make huge long winded tracks to get absorbed in... the tracks on this album are short and snappy and more 'song like'. There's 10 tracks of smart tunes on this record and you'd be a huge goon to miss out on this one. 'My get up and go just got up and went' is on ltd purple wax courtesy of those Static Caravan types and a digital CD version (on Headspin) for you more modern minded folk. Me, I love it I do. My mum would be so proud of me 'n all... I made it all the way through that without making one single ass gag. I can barely say a sentence in regular day to day conversation without dropping some filth in.... Oh we also got some copies of the debut in which I've only heard a bit of but so far it sounds amazing too! Phil x
