Dirty Beaches - Dune Walker b/w Rhythm Ace Dub 7”
Brand new Dirty Beaches 7” just surfaced on the tubes, with a digital release over on BnDcMpand a physical 7” record made in Germany with love from Slowboy. This release branches out into the strange, experimental, & often harsher live sound from Alex that he has been cultivating while touring live, while adding percussion and experimental sax to his sound beyond just guitar loops & samples. If you’re in love with the sound of Badlands you may be in for a rude surprise with the loss of all the nostalgic pop hooks. I myself do enjoy his lighter pop elements, but his 7”s have been evolving toward a completely experimental rough edge. Its not catchy, in fact Mike over at Norman Records put it just right as both peculiar and unsettling.
Each new 7” Alex releases feels like a unique rough gem. Unannounced, and more oft whispered about fervently in secret, this new addition to his rather large 7” library comes under the same silent air. As his Dirty Beaches project continues to grow and take form, I think its a privilege to listen to each new step along the way, a small window into his grand master plan.
Dirty Beaches - Dune Walker 7” is Ltd to 400 copies and can be had directly from Slowboy in Germany here, although for US shipping €8.50 seems a bit steep, so you can always grab a copy from Norman Records where shipping is only €2.50, while their no doubt small supply lasts.
