Beirut – The Rip Tide

This tune is not new. Coming from the album of the same name, this song has stuck in my head from the day I heard it along with most of the album. The band are not at all related to the city I visited 2 months ago but instead hail from New Mexico. This can be heard in the complex music using of trumpets and accordians and the use of harmony chorus. In fact its really a one-man band with Zach Condon performing most of the duties.

But the tune…if you don’t know it, have a listen. I promise it won’t be your last.
