Dustmuffin & The Aluminum Cans – Essential Recordings 1984-2001

Vague and unclassified are fitting descriptions for the music of Dustmuffin & The Aluminum Cans. This US based loose collective uses any sound they like to produce their weird anti-pop music and neo cabaret electroclash. Nineteen tracks is a lot to go through and Dustmuffin is not making it easy for you.

Nonetheless this collection is a good one and will please people with a taste for anti-pop. From electro inspired tracks like ‘Feelings’ and ‘Hate is a shape’ to weird folk and cabaret pieces like ’Mr. Revere’ and Accordeon song’, all the songs have this nihilistic attitude to disturb and please the listener.

Punch did a great job saving these songs and the additional video clips are great. Another wonderful Punch record!
