Dirty Beaches :: Lord Knows Best

My first impression of Vancouver's Alex Zhung Hai, who records under the name Dirty Beaches, was that of a cross between Richard Hawley and Leonard Cohen if, say, collaborating with Angelo Badalamenti.   An impression that still stands. Zung Hai's upcoming LP, Badlands, is a surreal meld of 50s crooner cool coupled with blurry washes of mood and sound. The below track, "Lord Knows Best," samples and re-imagines Françoise Hardy's "Voila" as a narcoleptic fever dream.
