Assembly of Dust's last studio album, Some Assembly Required features a who's who of classic and contemporary artists, including Richie Havens, Phish's Mike Gordon, Bela Fleck, Jerry Douglas, Martin Sexton, and Grace Potter among others. The group was formed in 2002 by former Strangefolk frontman Reid Genauer. Assembly of Dust has earned its greatest accolades in concert, having captivated fans everywhere from Bonnaroo to Carnegie Hall.
Critical kudos have been bestowed upon Genauer and the band, ranging from The New York Times to the Village Voice, who hailed him as "an articulate songwriter with a sturdy, well-crafted song cycle of an album as proof," and a delivery that "fleshes out the tunes like a good movie can elucidate a short story." Assembly of Dust also has a large and rabid following, regularly selling out NYC's Bowery Ballroom, Boston's Paradise and San Francisco's Independent, as well as performing at major festivals like Bonnaroo.
Each of Assembly of Dust's songs are realized with an ace band - Genauer on vocals and rhythm guitar, lead guitarist Adam Terrell, bassist John Leccese and drummer Andy Herrick - and a diverse collection of collaborators (including Béla Fleck, David Grisman, John Scofield, Mike Gordon, Richie Havens, and Martin Sexton). Highlights include opener "All That I am Now," with Genauer trading verses with Havens over a galloping, insistent beat and swirls of psychedelic guitar, the "Strawberry Fields"-esque "Arc of the Sun," the aching beauty of "Light Blue Lover" with Genauer backed by the supple harmonies of Grace Potter and the guitar work of Tony Rice, and the country shuffle of "Leadbelly," enhanced by the masterful pedal steel of Jerry Douglas.
