Casino Lisboa


Montreal’s Alex Zhang Hungtai, aka Dirty Beaches, has once again with newly released track “Casino Lisboa”. This is the third single off of Dirty Beaches’ new double album, Drifters/Love Is The Devil, a shift in genre (but not musical aesthetic or production) from 2011’s Badlands.

This song uses repetition as its most effective tool: the montony of the bass line and drum machine lay a groundwork for the sinister, unintelligible vocals and occasional outburst of guitar or keyboard. The lo-fi production adds to the krautrock-throwback feel. Drifters/Love Is The Devil is definitely a Canadian album (or should I say double album) to get excited about, and is out May 21.
