    The result is murky, hazy, psychedelic and endlessly replayable.

    Brian Borcherdt has made rough, beautiful songs out of broken bits of things, haunting atmospheres from the gritty transience of dust, and that's something worth doing.

    Total Dust undeniably taps into the same raw-nerved emotion that defined Borcherdt's previous solo efforts, wrapping its cutting sentiments in a grotty guitar fuzz that sounds like it was scraped off the heads on Lou Barlow's old four-track.

    Dusted may not be their day jobs, but both men have shown a clear ease and commitment to the act from note one.

    While a few of Total Dust's later tracks tend to blend together a bit, the album is never less than pretty and sincere, and it's always nice to hear artists like Borcherdt prove they can do several styles of music equally well.

    Dusted is an engaging and ultimately successful new direction. [Aug/Sep 2012, p.116]

    The result is the raw and crunchy folk record Total Dust.
