Alex Zhang Hungtai, known by his stage name Dirty Beaches, is a Taiwanese-born Canadian lo-fi musician based in Montreal, Quebec. Like Bo Diddley or minimalist synth provocateurs Suicide, Dirty Beaches’ compositions are not so much stripped down as refined to their essence. Drum loops, Hungtai’s croon, and the yearning melodies draped overtop belie as much a sense of haunting mystery as they do romanticism and wry humour.
