The only thing that is dusty about Dusted is their production value. "Total Dust" is innocent enough, but its a bit too clean to cut through the radar in the indie music scene. With traces of Neil Young trickling down into Chad VanGaalen, Dusted has placed a bowl that collected the run-off idolatry they like to call "inspiration". Maybe when I was a kid I would have found this as amusing as bands like Say Hi To Your Mom or Casiotone For The Painfully Alone. It's a bit odd knowing that half of this band is Brian Brocherdt of Holy Fuck. The overall feeling left from listening to this record is a wanting of something more, anticipating a secret track that will redeem the hitherto half an hour of my life... but then the secret track comes! Oh, wait... shit. I'm still hungry. Tracks like "Low Humming" and "Bruises" seem to all build up to "Pale Light". Just as the momentum kicks in, you're already half-way through the album. If you like chillwave folk, this album could be your diamond in the rough.
