Have you heard of this guy Beirut? He's some hot new young talent bursting onto the scene apparently. He plays lushly orchestrated pop in the style of the likes of The Divine Comedy or maybe a more accessible take on Sufjan Stevens's early work.

8/10 Mike Staff review, 25 August 2011

Have you heard of this guy Beirut? He's some hot new young talent bursting onto the scene apparently. He plays lushly orchestrated pop in the style of the likes of The Divine Comedy or maybe a more accessible take on Sufjan Stevens's early work. There's loads of brass on this, his debut album, coming out on the back of a couple of mega limited cassette releases. Where did this guy come from? Is Beirut his real name? Why is he never seen in public without a bowler hat? Nobody seems quite sure but I think this lad has a promising future if he keeps it up. People like that sense of mystery. 'Santa Fe' has a real '80s pop vibe going on with synths and stuff but overall the feel of this record is that it's been made by loads of real people with loads of real instruments that they blow into and pluck and whack with sticks. Rumour has it this is actually Ozzy Osbourne performing under a pseudonym but you didn't hear it from me.
