    Two things about this tour- first- Elastic Artists- Dirty Beaches EU/UK booker- delivers the goods.  Second thing- Dirty Beaches actually has an active press/pr presence in almost every single one of these territories- not just France, Italy & Germany, but also Switzerland- where his set will be broadcast live on the NPR equivalent, and Belgium- where Badlands is being reviewed like a new release in the relevant periodicals.

  That's almost a full year after Badlands release and the lesson I've learned is you don't give up on a hit release just because it's nearing the end of it's original press cycle (one year)
