Beirut
Gulag Orkestar

Teenage Albuquerque kid Zach Condon came marching out of nowhere with this debut as Beirut which sounds less like a precocious teen and more like a million piece Balkan orchestra. He was aided and abetted by Jeremy Barnes and Heather Trost (A Hawk and a Hacksaw) who played a variety of instruments which made Condon's songs sound something like Stephin Merritt backed by a drunken raggle-taggle folk collective. 

Beirut
Gallipoli

Zach Condon aka Beirut celebrates the 11th anniversary of not using the farfisa organ he used to write his first two albums by dragging it wheezing out of retirement to help get things back on track after the so so so No No No. After breaking his arm (no explanation given), he spent an intense month in a semi-isolated studio writing this his fifth album which the press release describes as unintentionally more visceral than the last two. So there. 

Beirut
No No No

Here we have No No No, the first Beirut album since 2011’s The Rip Tide. Here, Zach Condon and friends take a more direct, in-the-studio approach to their sound, somewhat more stripped down in instrumentation than past Beirut work, but still keeping it international, of course. On 4AD, on special limited green vinyl if you’re lucky.
