I don’t give a damn ’bout anything

Singing from the rooftops
Dirty Beaches is the musical alias of Alex Zhang Hungtai, a dude who used to be based in Vancouver, but is now living in Montreal. He’s got an LP called Badlands coming out soon. Go to Exclaim! to read my article about it.

Check out the single “Lord Knows Best” below, which is a slow-burning ballad that manages to be both creepy and totally blissful. It’s a simple two chord vamp, with a tinkling piano loop and cavernous, crooning vocals that sound like they’re being sung at the opposite end of a long tunnel.

Just as good is the ’50s-infused previous single “True Blue.” See the video here.
