VIDEO: Beirut

“The Rip Tide”

Beirut’s latest album The Rip Tide is fantastic, I’ve been listening to it on and off since it came out late last summer. A few days ago, the band released a new video for the title track and it’s gorgeous. The first three minutes are lovely and then things get a little trippy…watch and wait for it!

Best Of ’11: Beirut

Beirut – The Rip Tide

Zach Condon and friends have a very distinguishable sound. And it’s so odd. One minute you think you’re listening to old fashioned music from another land…and the next minute, nothing could sound more familiar and more current. The Rip Tide is nine gorgeous tracks that sound like the Beirut that fans know and love, but with an even more universal feel and tone. Listen to hear what I’m struggling to describe…

Beirut – “A Candle’s Fire”

I’ve been loving the new Beirut album, The Rip Tide. Zach Condon continues to bring a big, strong, baroque feel to his music without being too showy about it. The opening track is my favorite – setting the scene for the rest with it’s blasting horns and marching drum beat. Check it out:
