Here's my favorite track from Beirut's exceptional new album The Flying Club Cup. Oh, what's that I hear? Is it accordion again? Indeed, it is. Consider me an accordion addict. To me, the greatest thing about the music Beirut put out is that it sounds like a room full of people playing music. That may seem a bit simplistic, but I think it describes the band's sound well. It sounds like an ultra high quality recording of an unforgettable live performance. The future is definitely bright for Zach Condon and his band of gypsies. Creating music this good at such a young age is very impressive.
