Dusty Sound System (Truck Records) is a spinoff of the band Goldrush, which is odd since Goldrush is a sort of experimental Flaming Lips electroniclushfolk. On the other hand DSS is fairly straightforward folk/country. The band consists of members of Piney Girl, Ride, Electric Soft Machine and Brian Jonestown Massacre.
While this theme week was meant to be UK based singer-songwriters, it seems like it could have easily have been an anti-war (specifically Iraq) theme week as Dusty Sound System continues to rage against the politics, violence and senselessness of this war. It seems the British are more concerned with this war then we are here in the states, perhaps we need to take a stand soon as well. Both of these songs are off 2005′s Days of Horror, Nights of Splendor (buy it here though Cargo).
