Dirty Beaches - Dirty Beaches (2009) (C22) + True Blue (2010) (7")

"I'll be the first to admit the similarities between the current Dirty Beaches sound and Suicide are slightly glaring. However, when you pull it off this well, not to mention the early rockabilly undertones shining just as brightly, it becomes totally null and void. These are brilliant songs and Alex Zhang Hungtai is a brilliant performer! I caught him at OBEY this year and it was totally captivating for everyone in the room! Get these now, then go buy any of his releases as soon as you can! I hereby declare True Blue is the best 7" of the year!" - DD
