washing your feet on Dirty BeachesPosted: January 10, 2011
I’ve recently taken an interest in a project by a man named Alex Zhang Hungtai from Vancouver called Dirty Beaches. I started listening to his Daytrotter session a few weeks ago and was really blown away. This winter has been the kind of winter that deserves a soundtrack like this. I was a shut-in for the most part, and this music fits the mellow and pensive state I was in perfectly. Dive into this and let yourself float around for a bit. I think you will really enjoy it. If you feel that you’re in that part of your life where you don’t know what you’re doing with yourself, or are just despondent in some way, this could be for you. Now I feel like riding an old motorcycle while smoking a cigarette and wearing sunglasses. Dirty Beaches – Lord Knows Best (at Daytrotter)

Dirty Beaches’ debut full-length album, Badlands, will be released March 29th on Zoo Music. This is by far the most interesting release I’ve seen in 2011.
