AD Presents :: Dirty Beaches (Trans Pacific Radio Mixtape)

Welcome to the latest installment of an ongoing mixtape series in which I highlight some of my favorite voices online and beyond. This week we catch up with Vancouver's Dirty Beaches, the nom de tune of ghostly crooner Alex Zhung Hai. As mentioned last month, Zhung Hai crafts surreal washes of mood and sound---an aesthetic not unlike that of an Angelo Badalamenti score. Transmitting from China, Zhung Hai crafted the following mix touching down on the beaches of Hawaii, the plains of Niger and beyond.

Stay tuned for details per Dirty Beaches upcoming guest slot on my SIRIUS/XMU show. Download, mix details and song provenance, after the jump...
