Sound Check: Beirut 'Santa Fe'

Getting you through your week with a kick in your step.

Condon caught in a rare moment of blowing his own horn.

While the vocal debates rage on, breaking Watch the Throne down lyric-by-lyric, Zach Condon (along with the rest of his Beirut bandmates) have quietly released their first album in four years. The Rip Tide isn’t a massive departure–you’ll find some of the familiar sounds of Eastern European Balkan folk that accompanied Gulag Orkestar and March of the Zapotec–yet strikes just a bit of a happier tone. “Santa Fe” is a good example of this slightly more upbeat sound. Have a listen below.

The Rip Tide is out now on Pompeii/Revolver.
