The project of Alex Zhang Hungtai, Dirty Seashores’ spanned low-slung, lo-fi, post-rockabilly to ambient instrumentals. Blessed in Taiwan, Hungtai transferred to Canada young. Beginning in 2005, he released a slew of albums, EPs, and cassettes on brands such as Evening People and Fixture Information. Hungtai’s music is normally similarly familiar-sounding and surreal, blending a croon worth Elvis or Roy Orbison with Suicide-like drum devices and a fondness for discovered noises and hypnotic loops. He transferred to Zoo Information for his public debut record, Badlands, that was released in early 2011. Hungtai continued to be active, issuing singles on Suicide Press and a divide with Xiu Xiu in 2011 and 2012. He released water Park soundtrack on the Information in March 2013 as well as the dual record Drifters/Love May be the Devil that May. In 2014, Hungtai announced that his record Stateless will be his last beneath the Dirty Seashores name. Offering viola thanks to Italian composer Vittorio Demarin and blending by Dean Hurley, Stateless premiered in November 2014.
