“All my [musical] heroes are basically reinventing themselves every night when they play,” says Zhang, who explores his adopted home city of Los Angeles. “Whenever I play a small basement show just doing whatever I want, I feel so happy.”

After making a name for himself with previous group Dirty Beaches, a lo-fi, film-soundtrack-influenced project feted by everyone from The New York Times to Pitchfork, Hungtai felt the overwhelming urge for a creative rebirth. Despite many of his friends and peers advising him against it, the multi-instrumentalist drew a line under Dirty Beaches, swapped out his electric guitar for a saxophone, and started the jazz-influenced, improvisation-heavy Last Lizard. It is this unwavering devotion to his artistic impulse that marks out Zhang as one of the most uncompromising and exciting contemporary composers around.

w/ LA Timpa (TO, Bad Actors)
DEBUT SHOW.

LA timpa trafficks in mystery. The Toronto artist and his affiliates at the creative collective A.C.C. Studio claim to be from a place called PAJDERA, which is in all likelihood a mythical land. "UU UU Animal," premiering on The FADER toay, is the first release from his forthcoming ANIMAL EP, a conceptual project that was recorded throughout June between the hours of 1AM and 9AM. During those late night and early morning hours, LA timpa pieced together muddy vocals and sticky melodies that tell a story you have to listen really closely to pick out.

"The ANIMAL EP is inspired by LA timpa's overall aesthetic as a being, which was inspired by minimalism and the film Gummo. ANIMAL was also inspired by my recent move from my parent's home to Toronto and dealing with the emotions and experiences following that change," he told The FADER over email in a typically timpa-ish fashion.
