Dirty Beaches

Current touring partners Dirty Beaches and Xiu Xiu are marking this year’s Record Store Day with the release of a split seven-inch single, which will be assisted to its 21 Apr issue date by Polyvinyl.

Dirty Beaches’ contribution is a dark, dour cover of Francoise Hardy’s ‘Tu Ne Dis Rien’, while Xiu Xiu fulfil their side of the bargain with a version of Erasure’s ‘Always’. Which, as coincidence would have it, also happens to be the title of Xiu Xiu’s new LP. Very sly. Anyway. Listen to both covers here:
