Love Theme

One of my favorite artists of the last few years was the strange and lo-fi, rockabilly drone of Dirty Beaches, the project of Alex Zhang Hungtai.  That project has been defunct for a little while now, but the artist has remained busy, playing tenor sax for Trouble on "Twin Peaks" for one, and now with a new experimental and cinematic drone and electronics trio.  Love Theme make haunting stuff, and listening to "Desert Exile" is like painting a surreal night in ominous tones, driving through a dark city and observing its denizens silently through the window.  Listen below and grab the self-titled album here from Alter.
