Dusted consists of Brian Borcherdt (Holy Fuck) and Leon Taheny (Final Fantasy, Rituals, Bruce Peninsula).
The duo plays to their strengths and longtime experience to overcome some of the usual difficulties of a two man band, producing a sound that is richly fleshed out. Their recently released album, Total Dust, is described by Brian as a sort of collage of songs that came together over time and in between touring. Dusted stopped by our studio to talk with Maia about their new album and share a few songs.
Featured song: “[Into The] Atmosphere”
Total Dust is available now through Hand Drawn Dracula Records.
