X3 focuses on a new emerging Canadian Artist each month, bringing you exclusive interviews, news and performances across print (Exclaim Magazine), TV (Aux TV), radio (Radio 3) and web.
There are many Brian Borcherdts. There's the dance-punk-electronic Brian who is a member of the 2008 Polaris Music Prize nominated Holy F---. Then there's the sensitive solo alt-pop singer-songwriter Brian. His new project, with producer Leon Taheny, is called Dusted and gives us yet another view of Brian: the rougher, alt-rock grunge side. We're going to give you a chance to really know this Borcherdt all this month as Dusted is the X3 Artist. First and foremost, their new album Total Dust is streaming in its entirety all month long.
