“From the darkness of broken dreams, hearts, and lives rises a song that tells a story.” That is how Dust Of Days describe themselves. The band’s precision and accuracy in explaining their origin and purpose carries over into their song-writing. Tracks from this band are deep, dark and full of unrelenting, uplifting power. The best way to describe the feeling one gets from listening to their latest album “Analog Mindbender,” is to compare it to diving into a murky void only to be propelled back into the light. Dust Of Days founder Frank Lettieri founded the group as a sort of musical therapy for himself. His cathartic songs have the ability to touch those in despair by providing glimmers of hope in darkness.
“Analog Mindbender” was produced at the legendary Pachyderm studios, where Nirvana, Live, and Soul Asylum all laid down powerful recordings. In fact, the band began work at the studio 23 years to the day Nirvana began recording “In Utero” there. Dust Of Days said they drew energy from the walls of the storied recording studio. That energy is on full display in “Analog Mindbender.” The LP is available at dustofdays.bandcamp.com.
Tune to Jersey Rock on 95.9 The Rat Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 11:30 pm to hear cuts from “Analog Mindbender.” Frank Lettieri, Jim McGee, and Mike Virok will call in to the show each night!
