Oh how I love Beirut, the band that is. I've been in love with them for a year or two now (you have probably seen their music on some of my top 10 song lists). Listening to their music is like an instant trip to Europe, a step back in time and party with gypsies all at once. Their music is explosive, that's the only word I can really think to describe it lol. They have 2 full length Cd's :Gulag Orkestar and The Flying Club Cup, as well as numerous singles and EP's. My recommendation: buy it all! haha but if you cant, I do recommend purchasing the songs below I have on my music player.
I love their CD covers too!
***Below is a music video for Elephant Gun. I think they totally capture the spirit of Beirut in this one. The dancers are my favorite, to some they may seem overtly sexual, but in the dance world, this is so organic and beautiful. ENJOY :)
