NEWS: HOLY FUCK'S BRIAN BORCHERDT Reveals New Project "DUSTED" & Releases "TOTAL DUST" July 10

JULY 10, 2012


After six years of constant touring with Holy Fuck, Brian Borcherdt emerged from the tangled cables and broken drum machines with a slew of new songs. Looking to explore a different sound, Borcherdt teamed with producer Leon Taheny (Final Fantasy, Rituals, Bruce Peninsula) and together the pair recorded in a converted garage under the name Dusted

Labels, Polyvinyl (US) and Hand Drawn Dracula (Canada) proudly announce the release of Dusted’s debut full-length, Total Dust, on July 10th 2012

The resulting album, Total Dust, resides in an atmosphere that is sometimes melodic, sometimes haunting, and always clouded by a fuzzy glow. With string arrangements and half-hidden guitar feedback held together by the occasional tambourine and minimal drum machine, the stripped down mood perfectly complements a collection of songs that are more than capable of standing ontheir own merits.

Exclaim and Spin announced the release of Total Dust April 24th and each offer a stream of the track on their respective sites. Spin noted;“(Into the) Atmosphere, is a dewy lo-fi pop ramble, with sweetly multi-tracked vocals, cavernous layers of melancholy guitar strums, and galloping, off-kilter percussion.” Exclaim is linking direct to the full LP, Total Dust preorder (which includes a limited edition run of 300 copies of 180 gram maroon-coloured vinyl and deluxe CD packaging with an exclusive CD bonus track), here

Live, Dusted challenges the sonic limitations of a two-piece. Vocals and guitar are expelled through small overblown amplifiers and bolstered by a raucous backbone of live drums, 808 samples, and bass synth. Since their stage debut this spring, the band has performed with labelmates Deerhoof and of Montreal, while back home in Toronto the duo has been playing parties with fellow friends Army Girls, Odonis Odonis, and Little Girls.
