Music Monday 17


Beirut. I LOVE Beirut. Lead singer and main-man Zach Condon is a young 22 years of age. Wikipedia can't even describe their music mentioning them as Indie Folk, Pop, World Music, Folk. So, that means you'll have to listen for yourself. Trust me.

Their new album "March of the Zapotec & Realpeople" just came out and of course it's amazing. Still Zach Condon's voice is unusual and glorious, but this time he is backed by a 19 piece band from Mexico. Rad.

On Friday he was on David Lettermen singing "A Sunday Smile" from their 2007 album "A Flying Club Cup/"


and {Prepare to SMILE} one of my favorite Beirut songs on a Take Away Show:
