Looks like Beirut in here...

I tend to throw this word around a lot, but Beirut and this album are just sublime. I can not believe how young and talented one guy can be. The entire band play just about every instrument under the sun and the final result is something that resembles an Eastern Bloc carnival.

Description: Beirut's second LP purportedly takes inspiration from French chanson of yesteryear (as opposed to the Balkan folk of yesteryear). Bandleader Zach Condon has found a new home in Paris, and a new muse as well, quickly absorbing fodder from the likes of Francois Hardy or Jacques Brel. The music remains quite recognizably Beirut--in all ... (more)

" Rating: 7/10 Favorite Song: Nantes "Well, it's been a long time, long time now Since I've seen you smile And I'll gamble away my fright And I'll gamble away my time And in a year, a year or so This will slip into the sea Well, it's been a long time, long time now Since I've seen you smile" Beirut confuses me. It has a cheerful sound but the leading voice is depressing. So my mood is sincerely necessary ahead of my listening. "

Thirty Questions about Music (31 music items)

"1. Your favourite song. Beirut - Elephant Gun Almost an impossible question, the answer for me would change from week to week. Over time even my absolute favourites can become stale, and then there are songs which only work depending on your mood. I'll go with Elephant Gun because it is a great song filled with happiness and humour, despite the thinly veiled sense of hopelessness that runs through the lyrics. It's also stood the test of time over repeated listens, too. "

Looks like Beirut in here...

“I tend to throw this word around a lot, but Beirut and this album are just sublime. I can not believe how young and talented one guy can be. The entire band play just about every instrument under the sun and the final result is something that resembles an Eastern Bloc carnival. Brass ensembles and traditional Balkan instruments provide the soundtrack to romantic evening strolls through the friendly French suburbs in The Flying Club Cup. It's definitely a more upbeat and relaxed album than it's predecessor. It often makes me wish I wasn't such a bitter and resentful person and instead the kind of guy who got to experience the festivities that seem to entwine casually with the life of Zach Condon.

This is something amazingly different yet completely solid on my media player. I've ” read more
