After six years of constant touring with analogue-dance instrumentalists Holy Fuck, Brian Borcherdt has emerged from the tangled wires and broken drum machines with a dewy-eyed pop project. Haunting, atmospheric and emotionally bare, he draws on Women’s tantalizing, elegiac lo-fi moments; “Candy Says”-era Velvet Underground; and cavernous Microphones-style production. Some bands use reverb as a comfort blanket; Dusted use it as the world’s biggest canvas. Unmissably good.
