beirut: gulag orkestar
so i wonder who actually reads my blog. i get a few regular visitors [you know who you are] but there are a bunch of people who keep popping up that i don't actually know. who are you my fans and what do you want from me? speak up! make yourselves known! ;]
anyway in order to cater to the silent masses i will return to posting about my new favorite music as well [when i am motivated enough that is]. i always send cds to the karmadomicile but for those of you who aren't citizens of that great flat, i will clue you in on the most interesting sounds reaching my ears.
i just got the album from "beirut" who is a young guy, very young, making some insanely amazing sounds. i first heard about him from brookyln vegan and tried to track it down after i read the glowing review. well perhaps it is the fact that it's summer and sunny but this album really really excited me. it's a bit of yann tiersen, a bit gypsy, and a bit something awesome. if you want a copy... just ask :]
