I like the live performance of that song so much better than on the record.

i like "santa fe" a lot.

i'm doing the cobbler by listening to the rip tide, having lied to you all several pages back when i said i was jumping on the bandwagon.

spotifying my way through year-end lists and what other stuff they remind me i never got around to checking out/purchasing before is making me spend far too much money on itunes tonight...

Heard this on the radio yesterday and really liked it. Our boy Zach is featured pretty significantly in the song, give it a listen:

Still my favorite song on that record, and one of my favorite Beirut songs, period. Even though it usually make me cry.


edit: Damn, I wrote that before I got to the end of the video. Pretty great.

Beirut just posted some new photos on Facebook, the band's website is suddenly "down for maintenance", and someone posted this in the comments:

All I know of Beirut is that I saw them live and the lead singer's permanent, teethy smile was creepy as all hell.

That doesn't sound like Zach Condon.

Sept 11:



No No No:

01 Gibraltar
02 No No No
03 At Once
04 August Holland
05 As Needed
06 Perth
07 Pacheco
08 Fener
09 So Allowed



The follow-up to 2011's The Rip Tide was recorded last winter in Brooklyn by Condon, bassist Paul Collins, and drummer Nick Petree. According to a press release, its creation followed a physical and mental breakdown Condon suffered in Australia in 2013, as well as a divorce. "I had completely broken down and my body was making me pay for it," Condon said in a statement. "For the first time in my life, I was facing extreme self doubt. I had hit rock bottom." But the start of a new relationship provided Condon with a new outlook on life. "Having a positive presence like her both provides a healthy guiding force and shines a light on all the negative things in your life," he said. "I definitely wouldn’t be where I am now without her."

I have no idea what "Santa Fe National Historic Landmark" could mean other than a free concert on the plaza.
