I can’t stop listening to this new song from Beirut, a band I have never heretofore adopted with personal love. But this song immediately changed all that.

Their new album The Rip Tide is due August 30 on Pompeii Records; this song is sad and sweet and bohemian, with that shimmering brass cadence breaking through the grey piano.

Goshen – Beirut

It was first a b-side to the “East Harlem” 7″, which furthers my theory that the best songs are b-sides. Stream the full album on NPR for a little while here, or pre-order it at the Pompeii Records site.
