Ela Orleans and Dirty Beaches choose sides

Blake Gillespie

Ela Orleans/Dirty Beaches split

Atelier Ciseaux teamed up with La Station Radar and stateside label Night People for a split 12″ that, despite the stark contrasts, seem to find a dawn and a dusk before that quiet space that comes from flipping over the record. With artwork by Shawn Reed of Night People on recycled paper, Double Feature is a split 12″ that pits Dirty Beaches throbbing midnight madness against Ela Orleans surf balladry that patiently awaits the sunrise. While a song from each side was previously released on Night People's Double Deluxe Fold, the remaining 10 tracks are exclusive to the 12″.

It would seem Alex Zhang Hungtai is far from running short on droning rockabilly odes to outrunning the devil on a Vincent Black Shadow. Side B is shrouded in darknesss that's faintly illuminated by the occasional passing pair of headlights. Side A is the brightside as Ela Orleans opt for looping the histrionics of the beach party scene on “Neverend” for a ballad fit for Roy Orbison comparisons.

Purchase Double Feature now and take notice of the limited-run of 50 12″ vinyl and gray silk-screen t-shirt packages available here.
