video of the day: dirty beaches

Here´s a great video, I found yesterday, the music and images remind a bit of wong kar-wai films & moods:
dirty beaches

“Dirty Beaches is the main recording project of Alex Zhang Hungtai, a lo-fi recording artist and sailor at heart. Hungtai was born in Taiwan and raised between Toronto and Hawaii. Come join him sleepwalking through late night cinemas, in a kaleidoscope of tropical skylines, and midnight train rides. Bring your cigarettes.” (

On this label are several cdr´s for download. 2 cassettes are as well out on night city records (the one “night city” – c32 /NP 105 – can be bought in berlin in my favourite store bis aufs messer,linked here on the right sidebar)

A nice, less ambient 7″ is now out on zoo music, heres a free download of side a: the track “true blue”.

    Tolles Stück, das gerade auch perfekt zu diesem versuppten grauen Tag da draussen passt. Da möchte man wirklich den ganzen Tag mit dem Zug rumfahren und eine Fluppe nach der anderen gasen.
    Als erster Name bei den Einflüssen steht auf der msp-Seite von Dirty Beaches übrigens … Wong Kar-Wai. Das Video kann man dann wohl als Hommage verstehen.
    Habe gerade reingehört in die Bird EP … die ist komplett in dem Stil wie West Coast Bird. Schade, gibts nur als mp3, wäre sonst sofort gekauft!
