I was referencing a recent South Park episode. Sorriez.

I've seen 2-3 episodes of South Park, so it went over my head...that happens a lot.

Yeah. It's kinda weird shit. I want to see it's like an Eastern European folk sound from Southwest US, but that would probably blow your mind. But that's how I'd describe it. And then no one would listen to it....but it's good.

They played some of the new songs when I saw them in June and they were great.

NSW, as U2popmofo rightly pointed out in the DeVotchka thread, if you like DeVotchka you will probably like Beirut. They're different yet weirdly similar, with Beirut having more of a gypsy sound than a rock sound. I don't even like gypsy music but I love Beirut.

You will like it! I'd say at least 3 or 4 of the songs are up there as my favorite Beirut songs.

amazing!!! and I'm seeing him in about a month

this new stuff sounds so mexican, I love it

btw, "La llorona" it's a famous legend here in Mexico (deeper than what Stereogum said in the article, it's about Malitzin and... wait, this is not Mexican History class), and there is also a song called "La llorona", about that legend, search for it, in the Lila Downs interpretation, is one of my favorite songs ever
