Published May 03, 2013Pop-noire specialist Dirty Beaches (aka Alex Zhang Hungtai) is just about ready to unveil his Drifters and Love Is the Devil, and is teasing the former with a funky but freaky stream of "Casino Lisboa."
Straight away the song locks into a heavy bass loop, with steady tambourine hits and conga whaps gelling in the background. Hungtai, meanwhile, delivers his patented, possessed mumble over the arrangement, likely sounding off on the titular Portuguese gambling house, while the introduction of a snake-charming organ wisps hypnotically above it all.

Both Drifters and Love Is the Devil drop May 21 through Zoo Music.
