This single was released in late 2001 by the Italian label Music à la Coque, a few months after Helgoland's full-length CD entitled Media Music EP. "Dust" cuts and pastes all aspects of the group into a two-and-a-half-minute collage: It's frantic like a John Oswald plunderphonic but cheesy like your great aunt's old Hammond à gogo record. "Groindl in F Major" is a kitsch arrangement of a tune from 20 Minutes With Helgoland. "Rabbit Brand" rushes by on a sped-up Casio drum loop. Entertaining, quick-witted, and up to par with this band's output.
