Beirut - Gallipoli - LP -

Price per Unit (stuk): €14.95

Threaded through with head honcho Zach Condon’s musical adventurousness, Beiruit’s latest outing is lit up by luminous hooks, at times feeling like a victory lap for all that the band has achieved.

In the winter of 2016, Beirut’s headh honcho Zach Condon started writing music on his Farfisa organ. This was the same instrument on which the band’s acclaimed debut ‘Gulag Orkestar’ was written over a decade earlier. The group’s debut dazzled with its juxtaposition of Balkan folk with capricious indie; crunchy syncopated rhythms were combined with lilting festival-ready choruses, and the result was a hugely impressive, if unusual, first album.

Since then, the Sante Fe collective has released a series of records that – although rooted in the sound created on ‘Gulag Orkestar’ – have welcomed a host of new influences. ‘The Flying Club Cup’ saw Beirut go baroque pop, ‘The Rip Tide’ embraced mariachi with its bombastic brass arrangements and 2015 record ‘No No No’ was a 30-minute sugar rush of euphoric indie-pop. Each release was threaded through with Condon’s musical adventurousness.
