Dirty Beaches ‘Shore’ Sounds Good to Me!


Though many bands have bestowed themselves with far more becoming names, Dirty Beaches proves to be a fitting moniker for the sea of sentimental sounds conceived by musician Alex Zhang Hungtai. Inspired by 1950’s and early-1960’s rock, doo-wop, and surf music, and produced with gritty, lo-fi recording techniques, Hungtai’s new album, Badlands, holds songs that could have served as the soundtrack to your grandparents’ grainy 8mm film footage of their honeymoon on the shore.

Soak up the sounds of “True Blue,” and let us know what you think about Dirty Beaches!
