Alex Zhang Huntai is the mind behind Dirty Beaches. His project has captivated me upon arrival. If I had to describe Huntai I would give him the title of Enigmatic Nomad. He has built his vision by evacuating his homeland Taiwan and migrating to Montreal. Badlands, is a story of travel and experience. Dirty Beaches is a project that performs smooth, but breeds uncertainty as we continue to search for an answer to Huntai’s message. Is he lost? Is he in love? Did he fall out of love?
Huntai embraces Elvis Presley as an influence. I am pulled to an obscure story coming from a roaming thinker. Paul Simon’s Graceland hooked with a mystery. Listen to Bandlands. Also check out Dirty Beaches / Ela Orleans 12’’ double feature:
MOKB Presents: Dirty Beaches (support: Frankie Rose), September 26, White Rabbit Cabaret. 1116 Prospect Street. $8 ADV / $10 Door. Buy your tickets HERE.
