New Beirut

Indie wunderkind Zach Condon, aka Beirut is at it again. His upcoming album The Flying Club Cup is filled with the lush, gypsy-aping orchestrations of his debut Gulag Orkestar, and yet it feels somewhat different, sounding more Parisian than Balkan. But of course it's neither. Just a boy from New Mexico transplanted in Brooklyn dreaming up lovely European melodies that never existed.

Can't wait till October 9th? Here's a sneak leak.

Still a fan of the Lon Gisland EP myself, but God damn, this is exciting! Thanks for the early leaks! :)
