Track of the Day: 'Lord Knows Best' by Dirty Beaches
I don't expect this will be a particularly regularly feature on the blog, but every now and then I'll use it to bring to your attention a track I think you all deserve to hear. Taking the inaugural slot is 'Lord Knows Best' by Dirty Beaches, a track from their new album 'Badlands' which was released on iTunes this week (although it's been available independently for a few months). A solo project by Taiwan-born Alex Zhang Hungtai, the track is imbued with the spirit of David Lynch, the throat of Matt Monro and the leather jacket of Marlon Brando, and sounds entirely unlike anything else you'll hear this week.
