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.
