New Album Alert: Beirut - The Rip Tide
Zach Condon's Beirut is releasing The Rip Tide at the end of the month. On this LP, Condon's songwriting is said to be based less on imagination and more on personal experience and introspection. If you check around the internet, you will discover that music blogs and zines are praising the increased maturity of Zach's work, so I expect this album will be worth your time in listening to it. I know that I've liked what I have heard so far.
Here are two of the songs on the album.
Beirut - Santa Fe by Revolver USA
Beirut - East Harlem by Revolver USA
And if you'd like to stream the entire album, the nice folks at NPR have you covered here.
