The music of American Dust lies somewhere between lofi, folk, slowcore, electronic, and trance. American Dust is a music project that revolves around the songwriting of Johnnie Cluney. The music on AM Dust is a soundtrack for an early morning, rainy afternoon, or a lonesome evening. The "band" was formed in early 2011. The "unofficial debut" AM Dust is a collection of songs written and recorded between 2006-2008. The songs were recorded from home on and off with only a handful of musicians and friends.
