That's the first song on the album, I like it a great deal.

Look forward to hearing your thoughts when you get it! The indie station here has been playing a lot of tracks from it recently, which I approve of.

Aaaand....just arrived at work and here is my copy of The Rip Tide waiting for me. We're closed on Mondays so somebody must have been here to receive it.

My immediate thoughts are: nice packaging.

No. I don't like Mondays.

I have three-day weekends. Every week. Go ahead and hate me.

But we do a lot of events that require late nights, plus I have to travel a lot on weekends for work. So the three-day weekends more than make up for that.

My next batch of goodies just arrived, too: Magnolia Electric Co. "Josephine" and Songs: Ohia "Magnolia Electric Co." (Yeah, I'm confused.) Playing catch-up with that.

But I'm going to be listening to Beirut the next couple of weeks because the show's coming up.

When's your next Friday "conference call" from home?

I thought you'd get that right away.

I had a near-tragedy with my new Beirut CD. It got stuck in my car CD player as soon as I inserted it during my lunch break. Fortunately it finally ejected after I beat the hell out of the dash at a stoplight. This happened once before many years ago with not such a happy ending.

I was being sarcastic, as I definitely know what you're talking about.

Hopefully your cd and cd player will survive to live another horns filled Beirut day.

I need emoticons. This is troubling.

Not sure when I subscribed to this channel on Youtube, but thealternateside.org just uploaded 4 vids of Beirut performing tracks from The Rip Tide live in their studio. They sound pretty great, so I'm posting them here:

Beirut - "East Harlem" (Live at WFUV) - YouTube

Beirut - "Goshen" (Live at WFUV) - YouTube

Beirut - "Santa Fe" (Live at WFUV) - YouTube

Beirut - "Port of Call" (Live at WFUV) - YouTube

I'm on my third listen to Rip Tide. Early favorites: A Candle's Fire, Goshen, The Riptide, and the gorgeous Peacock.

Certainly the most accessible Beirut record and, though slight, is really quite wonderful beginning to end.

Oh my God, the title song is so amazing. I can't stop listening to it. This record might be taking its place alongside PJ Harvey and Radiohead as favorites of the year.
