Beirut live at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Baeblemusic

37 mins of live Beirut, absolutely fantastic audio quality (and decent video as well). The new song at first is pretty cool too. If you're a Beirut fan, you'll love it.


DrTeeth, what are your thoughts on the double EP? Joyful, why have you not purchased it (or if you have, why have you not discussed it?)?

I would like bump this thread so I can share how extremely excited I am that tomorrow I will finally get to see them live. The show being free is also braggable.

As a follow up, the show was extremely enjoyable. Certainly an indoor "paid" type event would have been a better atmosphere to see a band I like this much for the first time, but I was still thrilled to finally see them live. They played all the tracks I wanted them to play, and even played 3 new songs (at least I thought all 3 were new, I suppose one could have been a cover I was unfamiliar with). The new tracks were actually phenomenal, so we definitely have good things to look forward to. The entire set was an hour and forty minutes, which is pretty decent for a band with only two full length albums I suppose. Zach said, "We've ended up playing way more songs than we'd planned on" towards the end of the show, so that was cool.

Yay!!!

I'm very happy I got to see them last year. It's time they released some new material though.

Quote:
The last month or so has seen an increased level of activity from sonic postcard-sender Zach Condon's Beirut project; he's hitting the road for a fairly extensive tour soon and he contributed a Caetano Veloso cover to the Red Hot Organization's forthcoming benefit compilation, Red Hot + Rio 2 (stream it above). If you guessed that this means that there's a new album in the cards as well, then give yourself a gold star, because you pretty much nailed it.

Condon recently told HitFix that the as-yet-untitled record is set for release "sometime this summer" and was recorded this past winter in upstate New York. He told HitFix that the new album is "sunny," saying, "I write sad songs when it’s nice outside. I write warm and happy songs when I'm up to my neck in snow for three months."

HitFix also points out that Condon contributed new and previously recorded music to the score for the documentary Bombay Beach, directed by music video lenser Alma Har'el.

That is a fucking awesome cover.

Heard Gulag Orkestar for the first time the other day, my introduction to the band. It was a beautiful album, very different from what I normally listen to because I'm an ignorant American. Will gladly listen to more in the future.

I've enjoyed his last two albums a lot so I look forward to the new one with the dogs.

The Flying Club Cup is probably my favourite, it really makes me feel nostalgic for Europe.

A good friend of mine whose tastes I rarely question is going to see the Bay Roots in Dallas tonight. I've never listened to them. Shall I?
