Dusted - Self Titled - LP (Release date: 06.2012)



After six years of constant HOLY FUCK touring, Brian Borcherdt emerged from the tangled wires and broken drum machines with a new offering of songs, a stripped down presentation, disguised under the name DUSTED. The disguise is fitting. The songs maintain a fuzzy glow beyond a thin veil of dust and distortion. All songs were committed live by playing electric guitar and singing through a tiny overblown Marshall practice amp. The songs were then left to their own ghosts, slowly to be taken by subtle string arrangements, hidden guitar feedback, distorted drum machines, and the occasional backbone of a full band.

Brian Borcherdt has already found a devoted cult following through previous solo releases, such as Coyotes and the Moth EP, and found international acclaim through his polar opposite Holy Fuck. With Dusted he finds a fitting middle ground, unencumbered by the trappings of a solo singer/songwriter while offering something more lasting and personal than performance-based experimentation.

Dusted came into focus in a small converted garage in Toronto through the helping hands of Leon Taheny, while a couple of songs crept up from a cabin in rural Nova Scotia. A near year from its completion, the ten song record will come to life May 2012 on Hand Drawn Dracula.
