Really enjoying this Dirty Beaches EP, which soundtracks a short film by Evan Prosofsky about the waterpark at West Edmonton Mall in Alberta, Canada — my home province! (You can watch Waterpark on Vimeo.) The film calmly and unjudgmentally shows how surreal the water park fundamentally is, this huge tropical bubble in the middle of the tawny Canadian prairie.

The soundtrack matches that wide-eyed feeling — mostly synth textures that are luminous, but also kind of faded and quavering. This song, on the other hand, is eerie guitar loneliness similar to the excellent “Alone at the Danube River” from last year’s Love is the Devil. Like that song, the guitar here is just a little out of tune — the subtle shudder between frequencies makes the notes sound like they’re sloshing around, alone beneath the clear bright water of the pool.
