Beirut – Live at the Music Hall of Williamsburg

When I heard that Beirut had a new album coming I got excited. I’ve loved all of the previous albums including Mr. Condons electronic explorations with the March of the Zapotech EP.

Anyhow, when I heard the lead single, “East Harlem,” from the new album, The Rip Tide, it felt instantly familiar. Where had I heard it?

Turns out it is the opening track to my favorite Beirut album –which is actually not even a legit album at all. July 1, 2009 I came across “Beirut – Live at the Music Hall of Williamsburg.” It is one of my very favorite Sunday morning albums and like I said, is my go to when I want to hear Beirut. It’s tough to believe an album this well recorded, mixed & produced was never officially released.

So, my friends, I am happy to present that concert in full for you here. I hope you like it.
