“There Somehow” by Dusted, from the album Total Dust (Hand Drawn Dracula).
“(Into The) Atmosphere” by Dusted, from the album Total Dust. The video was directed by Aaron Kopff and Paul Gerretsen and has the band playing on a rooftop next to their favourite tequila bar, on a hot Toronto evening. Dusted‘s Brian Borcherdt says this video “accurately demonstrates my C+ ability at lip syncing and my A+ ability at making sunglasses suddenly disappear and reappear on my face.”
In October, Dusted will be hitting the road with Perfume Genius for a North American tour. Toronto folk, catch Dusted on Aug. 16th at Amsterdam Brewery as part of the Open Roof Festival (a summer series of film screenings, live music and sizzling food). This date includes the Wes Anderson film Moonrise Kingdom and food by Sky Blue Sky. More details here.
You know the drill. Whether you’re a Rdio or Grooveshark user, here’s what I thought rocked in July (featuring songs by MNDR, Two Door Cinema Club, Sun Airway, Dusted and many more). Note: there’s more tracks on the Grooveshark playlist, if you’re looking for a longer play.
Dusted is musician Brian Borcherdt (Holy Fuck) and producer Leon Taheny (Final Fantasy, Rituals, Bruce Peninsula), who created the album Total Dust from recording sessions in a converted garage. On the record, their sound is an atmosphere that is sometimes melodic, sometimes haunting, and always clouded by a fuzzy glow. Live, the two challenge 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”.
The album comes out July 10th via Hand Drawn Dracula/Polyvinyl. Check out the song “(Into The) Atmosphere”.
