Beirut - Gallipoli (colour vinyl)
LP - Limited Green Vinyl
The fifth album from Zach Condon and his band (Nick Petree, Paul Collins, Ben Lansz, Kyle Resnick, Aaron Arntz) recorded with producer Gabe Wax (Adrianne Lenker, Big Thief).
Heavenly trumpets and Latin-smudged beats. Sonorous vocals front heartbeat rhythms (well your heartbeat if you were a flamenco dancer maybe). Singing trumpets and rich sonorous vocals fly and hover. This is happy sad music as though the old king has died and we mourn his death whilst simultaneously celebrating the crowning of the new king. With a sprig of spaghetti Western and the Farfisa organ the album was written on.
