" Named as the lebanese city, sounds like an european band, but came from the States. Can it be more global and, yet, unique? "

Parnasianismo Indie (8 person items)

"As did I, we drink to die, we drink tonight Os indies gostavam desta banda em segredo, era só mais uma das inúmeras bandinhas underground aleatórias tentando a sorte. Mas aí a música deles foi parar em minisérie da Globo e caiu no gosto do povão. Eles ficaram ricos, milionários, lindos e joiados, pegando um monte de mulé. Como indie parnasianista não pega ninguém, logo concluiu que eles estavam traindo o movimento. Agora não são mais indies. Que sirva de lição. HUMPFT!"

"Nominated by Grand Assault Probably my favourite music artist. Well, at least over the last three years or so. An incredibly talented young musician whose music brings all the fun of a Balkan carnival. He gets my respect for making brass instruments cool again. Beirut's songs are feel-good masterpieces packed with sprinklings of European romance. Favourite Album: The Flying Club Cup Favourite Song: Elephant Gun "
