This 7 track mini album release runs over 27 minutes Alex Zhang Hungtai AKA Dirty Beaches started off as a one man band in 2005, Montreal and has since released a dozen releases on various independent labels.
A trans-pacific nomad and genre hopping sound smith, his past releases include: drone instrumentals, films scores, and his fascination with dissecting popular american music like blues, rockabilly, soul, RNB, and hip hop, often rendering them to the point where its no longer recognizable.
His latest release WATERPARK is a film score written for Director Evan Prosofsky's same titled film, and explores the neutral element of sound in a massive indoor water park located in west Edmonton Mall, in the province of Alberta. A vacation home to countless stranded Canadians with no vacation in sight.
The instrumentation of oscillators, heavily reverberated strings, mellotron/chamberlain, and experimental electric guitar sets the mood for this bizarre plastic tropical paradise thats within a shopping mall.
