Dusted Unreleased Tracks & Tour Dates

dusted metz flexi

In advance of their four SXSW shows this week, DUSTED open the vault sharing two early, unreleased tracks. “No Trouble” makes its debut; the never-before-heard track is available as a free download via Soundcloud. DUSTED also release a video stream of “In Yr Skull”, originally available at CMJ as an extremely limited edition flexidisc split with METZ.

Both tracks were recorded early in the genesis of DUSTED and feature HOLY FUCK as the backing band. In this incarnation of Dusted are BRIAN BORCHERDT on vocals and guitar, Brad Kilpatrick on drums, Matt McQuaid on bass and Graham Walsh also on guitar. Anna Edwards provides background vocals on “No Trouble”.

In April DUSTED return to Canada, playing eight cozy venues with stops in the eastern corridor from Montreal, Quebec to London, Ontario. Full tour dates listed below.

BELIEFS – BELIEFS   (clear smokey vinyl / premium digital)

“First Look: Prepare to get hooked on the glistening new album from fuzzy dream-pop band, Beliefs” ~ Dazed & Confused

“using their seminal influences as a catalyst rather than template, “their self-titled debut album is a frighteningly assured and expansive effort, recalls last decade’s High Water Marks, Women or Deerhunter” ~ Rough Trade UK

“Layers of dreamy barely-there vocals, thick crunchy guitar chords, feedback overtones and urgent drums propel this addictive, rousing shoe-gaze anthem.” ~ Rough Trade/The Guardian UK

“The album will please fuzz-lovers with distortion-filled amp-melters like “Catch My Breath,” while seven-and-a-half minute closer “Gallows Bird” begins with contemplative arpeggios before exploding into a cinematic epic.” ~ Exclaim! Magazine

Beliefs – Lilly (Video)

Just ahead of their debut album (PRE-ORDER HERE), BELIEFS release a new video for “Lilly“, directed by Ivy Lovell and Benjamin Portas. “Lilly” premiered on Stereogum, Paper Magazine, Chartattack, & Exclaim! Magazine. “Catch My Breath” is also named Track Of The Week over at Rough Trade & The Guardian UK.

“You are invited too the strangest of dinner parties in Beliefs’ video for “Lilly.” The Toronto shoegazers deliver a hazy Matthew Barney-like fever dream with black and pink spaghetti served as the main course.” ~ Stereogum

Beliefs – NME’s #1 The Buzz

#1 BUZZ in this week’s issue of NME Magazine!

NME The Buzz
#1 BELIEFS
Beamed up from the same Canadian hype scene that made good with Grimes and Doldrums, Toronto duo Beliefs are, in a musical sense, the blissed-out siblings of their freaky Montreal buddies. Clinging to the shaky shoegaze train, they manage to not be totally boring – unlike 99.9 per cent of their genre compatriots. Songs like ‘Catch My Breath’ give a serotonin injection to soaring dreampop that’s every bit as spiritual as their name suggests. What’s more, singer-guitarist Jesse Crowe used to have a hairdressing salon called – ahem – Grateful Head. Their self-titled debut LP – out March 4 on No Pain In Pop [March 5th on Hand Drawn Dracula & Manimal] – promises nifty cuts of the sonic variety.

Beliefs “Violets” Video

BELIEFS have a brand new video for the bonus track and digital single “Violets“, directed by Adam Christopher Seward of RITUALS (http://adamchristopher.4ormat.com). “Violets” premiered on MuchMusic’s The Wedge, Exclaim!, Chartattack, & NYLON Magazine.

· PRE-ORDER BELIEFS “Self Titled” on Premium Digital & Limited Clear/Smokey Vinyl.

Beliefs – Lily (live video)

“In August, Exclaim! TV was invited to Candle Recording to shoot a session with Toronto shoe-gazers, BELIEFS. Gearing up for a new album to be released in 2013, the band treated Exclaim! to a couple of album cuts that have not been released yet. You already got a taste for what the yet-to-be-titled album will sound like back in October when we posted the first song from the session, “Dead Water.” Now, you can take a listen to the second song from that session, “Lily.”” ~ Exclaim!TV Magazine
