Dust Covered Carpet was a Vienna-based band, founded by Volker Buchgraber in 2007. Until they broke up in 2016 they released four LPs and three EPs, drawing an arc from action-folk to chamber-pop, a steady process of creating and performing music, a commitment to fondle and exploit dragging emotions, in hope to escape from that recurring, heavy state of mind.
The band had a darkness to it, like a heavy heart after a night full of longing and self-loathing. But you always felt that there is light somewhere along this ride. This light has continued to shine.
In cooperation with Seayou Records we released a split 7″ with Dust Covered Carpet and Die Eternias as well as a limited edition of Dust Covered Carpet skateboards and T-shirts. Dust Covered Carpet contributed the songs "Mouthflower" and "My Elegy" to the record.

And you know when you should ride our Dust Covered Carpet board? When the streets are empty, dark clouds are passing by, moments of bright light, you are looking for shelter, take in a deep breath under the wide sky and then continue the ride with a "Man, I am still alive".
