The much anticipated release of new music from one of the most talented bands I’ve ever heard is about to be unleashed. BEIRUT’s mastermind, Zach Condon, and his mega-multi-member band took a break early 2008 canceling a European tour over the summer. But all for good. We’ll be hearing the new stuff in the coming months. Did I mention it’s a double EP, March of the Zapotec/Holland? Yessssssssss.

Until then, enjoy this…

Beirut, A Sunday Smile

and fall in love with this…

Beirut, Prenzlauerberg

According to Zach, Beirut will be playing a few surprise shows in smaller venues in New York. If anyone out there gets word of when and where please let us know. 🙂

Visit Beirut, read the news.

You can’t listen to Beirut’s music without feeling totally awesome. One of our favorites. I put Postcards from Italy on my daughter’s 13th birthday playlist. Too bad they’re not together at the moment. We’d love to see them live.

Elephant Gun

Postcards from Italy

They were also sampled in a complimentary bmx trick dvd at a local Vineland bike shop, Ed’s Bike Shop. Pretty neat.

Other bands featured on my daughter’s 13th Birthday Playlist:
Blonde Redhead, Van She, Yael Naim, Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova, New Young Pony Club, Band of Horses, Kate Nash, Ghostland Observatory and Fisher. It’s featured on ITunes IMix section, but I’m having trouble loading it on this page…sorry!
