Beirut – Santa Fe (2011)


Beirut’s Zach Condon released his debut album The Gulag Orkestar at the age of 19, having been inspired by the Balkan folk music he heard on his gap year travels. That’s youthful confidence for you. By his third long player The Rip Tide, you can still hear the frilly brass and accordions, but throw in a Talking Heads riff and you have ‘Santa Fe’. A song for a sunny day. We need one of those in Blighty soon (and perhaps their boat).
