Dirty Beaches - Lord Knows Best

This song sounded dope playing in the store when it shuffled its way into my heart.

Montreal based Artist Alex Zhang Hungtai / A.K.A. Dirty Beaches samples from vintage drum machines and provides the vocals on his tracks, earning him a bad ass artist award for most organic sampling I've heard in a great while. The 60's feel he maintains makes every track I discover such an utter treat I couldn't help but share it with the rest of you.

Now hunting for this on vinyl, if anyone out there knows where to procure these delights please let me know!
