mp3: Dirty Beaches –

“Lord Knows Best”

Badlands is the debut full-length from “trans-Pacific nomad”/crooner Alex Zhang Hungtai, aka Dirty Beaches. Forget for a second that it sounds like he copped that moniker straight from the chillwave name generator, and get lost in this lovelorn, hopelessly romantic track from the record’s gorgeous and more pensive second half, which Alex promises is made up of “ballads and dirges laced with murder and lament.” Edit: Thanks to the commenter that pointed out the Françoise Hardy sample.

Badlands is out March 29 on Zoo Music. Catch Dirty Beaches on tour with Dum Dum Girls later this winter.
