DUSTER – ” Duster “

Posted: October 17, 2022 in MUSIC

Duster” is the third studio album by American rock band Duster. The album was released December 13, 2019 by Muddguts Records in the United States; the first Duster album to not be released under the Up Records label. This is also the first studio album released by the band in 19 years since the release of “Contemporary Movement” in 2000.

Like a lot of their cohorts on the slower side of the late-90s alternative spectrum, Duster didn’t seem like much in the moment. Founded in 1996, the band released two albums and a handful of singles and EPs before quietly dissolving at the turn of the millennium. With clean tones and slow-moving chord changes, the trio often echoed aspects of “slowcore” contemporaries like Low, Codine, and Red House Painters, welling up into noisy Spacemen 3 terrain at their most pronounced. Tim Sendra praised the band for its ability to deliver quality music after such an extended hiatus: “At a time when almost every band ever has reunited to make disappointing, derivative music, Duster have come back to make their most sonically challenging and emotionally invested record yet”.

The band released their first standalone single in almost 20 years “Interstellar Tunnel” (the track was not included on the album “Duster”), 

Upon its release, “Duster” received positive reviews from music critics. Tim Sendra praised the band for its ability to deliver quality music after such an extended hiatus: “At a time when almost every band ever has reunited to make disappointing, derivative music, Duster have come back to make their most sonically challenging and emotionally invested record yet”.

Originally released December 13th, 2019
