iTunes Editors’ Notes

There are at least two musical sides to Canada's Alex Zhang Hungtai, a.k.a. Dirty Beaches. There's the minimalist, experimental artist interested in expansive, brooding soundscapes, and there's the bleak, rockabilly-filtered post-punker (à la murky, hiccupping punk pioneers Suicide) behind 2011's striking Badlands. Hungtai isn't an artist easily pegged or understood, so it follows that he'd be interested in soundtrack projects, free to fill a blank aural canvas with textures, colors, and moods that capture the spirit of visual images. The short film "Water Park" (by Evan Prosofsky, director of videos for Grizzly Bear, Grimes, and more) is an arresting and strangely smile-inducing view of the world's second-largest water park, in Edmonton, Canada. Hungtai trades in distorted rock rhythms for washes and weaves of oscillating synths, subdued and echoing guitar notes, digital flutes, and organ sounds, all to accompany footage of mesmerizing airborne bungee divers and swimmers frolicking in the frothy blue-and-white waves of a chlorinated manmade ocean. A beautiful listening experience.

Biography

Formed: Taiwan

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Hungtai's music is equally familiar-sounding and surreal, mixing a croon worthy of Elvis or Roy Orbison with Suicide-like drum machines and a fondness for found sounds and hypnotic loops. He moved to Zoo Records...
