total dust (2012/POLYVINYL)
POST-ROCK. After six years of constant HOLY FUCK touring, Brian Borcherdt emerged from the tangled cables and broken drum machines with a slew of new songs. Looking to explore a different sound, Borcherdt teamed with producer Leon Taheny (Final Fantasy, Rituals, Bruce Peninsula) and together the pair recorded in a converted garage under the name DUSTED. The resulting album, "total dust", resides in an atmosphere that is sometimes melodic, sometimes haunting, and always clouded by a fuzzy glow. With string arrangements and half-hidden guitar feedback held together by the occasional tambourine and minimal drum machine, the stripped down mood perfectly complements a collection of songs that are more than capable of standing on their own merits. Vinyl comes on 180gr. and includes a digital download card.

EARLY DAY MINERS
the threatment (2009/SECRETLY CANADIAN)
POST-ROCK. "the treatment", their 6th album since their 2001 debut, EARLY DAY MINERS have continued the tradition of long, sweeping tracks that paint the air with meditative descriptions of life’s many temperaments, with the addition of more germane social topics. But make no mistake: this is not an unpleasant trip down melancholy lane with dead trees. The transition therein is smooth and gentle, but still strongly emotive, akin to what the CURE’s "disintegration" would have sounded like if Robert Smith had a more optimistic outlook.
