MUSIC: Beirut (Flying Club Cup)

I would categorize Beirut's previous full-length, Gulag Orkestar, as a grower. It took me a while to really latch onto it, but I can now say (with confidence) that it's a mighty fine piece of work. Which leads to my excitement for the upcoming Flying Club Cup (out on October 2nd), obviously. (I also thought you'd enjoy the sweet discount offer talked about below). The new album, apparently all about France, was recorded rather sparsely in Albuquerque (as expected, with favorable results). Revolver's blog has a comprehensive review, check it out. As always, here's some sample tracks.

::: Beirut - Cliquot (from Flying Club Cup)
::: Beirut - A Sunday Smile (from Flying Club Cup)
::: Beirut - Scenic World (from Lon Gisland EP)
::: Beirut - Brandenberg (from Gulag Orkestar)
