What great music did you hear about/discover this past week? Share with us your MUSIC MONDAY FINDS!
Beirut is a country in the East Mediterranean; however, the band began in New Mexico, USA. Initial member, Zach Condon, dropped out of high school, toured Europe with his brother, and was influenced by, and incorporated, world music into his songs. Upon returning to the states, Condon recorded his first album in his bedroom (he’d been recording music since he was 15 years old) and, with the assistance of two future members of Beirut, recorded in the studio. Beirut performed their first show when Condon was just 20 years old. Now, at 27, Beirut is touring the world, releasing new albums (The Rip Tide, 2011), and producing a more defined and mature sound.
