Published Feb 20, 2013While Dirty Beaches fans are gearing up for the one-two punch of the dark-pop performer's impending Drifters and Love Is the Devil LPs, don't forget that the artist born Alex Zhang Hungtai also has a vinyl pressing of his Water Park score on the way. While the record was previously set for a January release date via A Recordings Ltd., it now arrives on March 5.
As previously reported, the work scores Evan Prosofsky's film Waterpark, which is an "audio/visual exploration of West Edmonton Mall." A press release explains that Hungtai's seven-song soundtrack utilizes experimental electric guitar lines, mellotron, oscillators and other noises to recreate the vibe of the "bizarre plastic tropical paradise that's within a shopping mall."
While the vinyl release is a few weeks away, the set has been available digitally on iTunes since December.
Drifters and Love Is the Devil, meanwhile, are set to drop May 21 through Zoo Music.
