[mp3] Dirty Beaches – “Sweet 17”

The 8 songs on Dirty Beaches upcoming debut Badlands show off two unique sides to the open road at night music of Montreal’s Alex Zhang Huntai.  The aching, distant, star-lit soul music captured on “Lord Knows Best” represents the album’s back half, a beautiful come down of sorts after the four harrowing bangers that open the record are finished scaring the shit out of you.  “Sweet 17” is one of them songs, a desperate plea for under-aged passenger side company that perfectly combines Huntai’s admiration of Suicide, surf, rockabilly, and desolate Western highways.  Badlands drops 3/29 through Zoo Music.
