Duster was an American slowcore band. It consisted of multi-instrumentalists Clay Parton, Canaan Dove Amber, and Jason Albertini. Albertini played drums on three tracks for 1998's Stratosphere, and with 1999's 1975, became much more involved in the group process, playing many more instruments and sharing recording/producing credits with Parton and Amber. By 2000's Contemporary Movement he was fully involved in the creative process as a permanent member of the group.

Parton also tinkers with his side project Eiafuawn and plays drums and tours with punk band El Buzzard. Albertini has his own band Helvetia (http://www.helvetiaband.com) that has put out multiple records on Parton's record label The Static Cult Label and plays keyboards/drums with Mike Johnson. Parton and Amber also run the Low Earth Orbit recording studio.
