Sound-Dust is an album by the band Stereolab, released in late 2001. It was recorded with producer Jim O'Rourke and John McEntire.

'Nothing To Do With Me' features lyrics derived from sketches by English satirist Chris Morris.

Upon initial release, limited quantities of handmade 'book' sleeves were released for both CD and LP formats. These were limited to 1200 copies for each format.

It is Stereolab's last studio album to feature singer/guitar player Mary Hansen, deceased in a bike accident the following year.
