MUSIC REVIEW: I really enjoyed the Toronto duo known as Dusted playing a tune called “Property Lines” from their new record called Total Dust. The whole album is subdued but very tastefully distorted. If you like clean-cut guitars and keyboards steer away but if you enjoy dirt on the guitar strings and old school keyboards then by all means dive-in to them. At time it’s sparse but wide open like a lush wash of sounds. The video below a stand-out track and is great because of the deep, dirty low keyboard the that the drummer plays! The live guitar tones coming out of their Traynor amps was cool too. Features Brian Borcherdt on vocals and guitar from Holy Fuck, LIDS & drummer keyboard dude Leon Taheny from Final Fantasy, Rituals, Bruce Peninsula. A lot of mofo bands.
When bands have a day off they get invited to play on the 11th floor. Simple concept and win for me since I rarely get a chance to see bands anymore. They just come to me and play their best 4-6 songs and back to work. A pretty awesome perk.
Get Dusted from Polyvinyl Record Company.
