Dusted is the project of Holy Fuck’s Brian Borcherdt which finds him trading noisy electronics for fuzzy landscapes, dream-like production and buzzing melodies enveloped in an all-consuming haze.
Dusted’s sophomore release, Blackout Summer, picks up right where the band left off on 2012’s Total Dust.
Blackout Summer is available on stunning Early Bird 180-Gram Rust/Bone vinyl (ltd 300), 180-Gram Clear w/ Black Smoke Vinyl, and CD.

Dusted – “Backwoods Ritual” [OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO]
WE LOVE THIS ALBUM, BUT DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT:
“The album plays like the flip side and comedown to Borcherdt’s work with Holy Fuck, a stirring, cerebral counterpart to the latter’s visceral grit—more gentle, but just as inventive. Both catch you off guard, and leave you feeling a little buzzed.” – Noisey
“The offering is a moody and haunting listen as Borcherdt works with quiet space and atmosphere, subtle elements he never fully gets to play around with while as part of Holy Fuck.” – Consequence of Sound
“[Blackout Summer] retains the coherence and intimacy that marked Total Dust; muffled guitars, ambient noise and Borcherdt’s high-pitched melodic croon remain the foundations…Intimate and soulful, [it] is a record few expected but many should check out.” – Exclaim!
“The layer of grime that settles on Blackout Summer‘s surface merely highlights the strength of feeling within and a bright storm that brews beneath. It’s a work of finely executed ambience and understated, yet emotionally resonant, songwriting.” – Under The Radar
