Dirty Beaches' Alex Zhang Hungtai is a busy guy; Japanese label Big Love is releasing an EP, Hotel Songs, to go alongside double album Drifters/Love Is The Devil, which they put out on 14 May, with the Europe and US release coming a week later via Zoo Music on 20/21 May.

'Danseur De Ballet', from the Hotel Songs EP, is a lonely, wandering piano-led composition, resembling a cutback Philip Glass. It seems that prolific Dirty Beaches is digging the instrumental tracks at the moment, with previous offering 'Landscapes in the Mist' resembling a twisted Vangelis Blade Runner score playing at the bottom of the ocean.
