Beirut, "Nantes"

Man, I love Beirut, aka Zach Condon, the young guy you see walking down some Brooklyn stairs in this live video made during the making of his newest album, The Flying Club Cup. Everything I read about Beirut says that he has brought back an "old world sound," or something, but doesn't this actually sound like the most modern music possible? There is something very "post-postmodern" going on here, as my friend Kevin would say.

"Elephant Gun":

"Postcards from Italy":
